Matthew Lowton has signed a three year deal with Burnley.
The defender quit Aston Villa after he's been out of favor for months now and has decided to take this talents to relegated Burnley. This obviously means Lowton will not have any fantasy value and even if Burnley were to be promoted next season, he wouldn't be a great fantasy choice in the future. Jun 25 - 12:29 PM

Matthew Lowton seems set to sign with relegated Burnley after a poor Aston Villa season.

Lowton was arguably Aston Villa's best player just a couple of seasons ago but it's all gone downhill from there and he only featured in 12 matches this year. The defender will be a quality starter at Burnley, who no longer play in the Premier League, and will act as Kieran Trippier's replacement. Whether or not the move is completed, avoid Lowton in fantasy at all costs.

Matthew Lowton can't find a place in the Aston Villa rotation and continues to struggle.

Lowton played in the absence of Alan Hutton but with the return of Hutton he has been relegated back to the bench. Lowton hasn't been able to stay on the pitch due to unimpressive play and is unlikely to be a fantasy option anytime soon barring injury. Continue to avoid him.

Matthew Lowton is determined to fight for his spot in the Aston Villa starting XI.

Lowton has struggled to keep a regular starting spot in Villa's rotation and has seen Leadro Bacuna take over his spot for periods of time. Lowton recently had a clear-the-air talk with Villa boss Paul Lambert and is ready to fight for his spot in the rotation. Avoid him in fantasy while there continues to be uncertainty about his role.

Matthew Lowton and Leandro Bacuna could both find a place in Aston Villa's squad, despite playing the same position.

Both Lowton and Bacuna play at the right-back position but Paul Lambert chose to play them both at the same time to finish off the game against Cardiff last time out. Lowton played at right-back while Bacuna played a more advanced role that freed him to create chances. A more advanced role for Bacuna should be good news for fantasy owners as he excels in creating chances and scoring goals.

Aston Villa right back Matthew Lowton has lost his place in the starting lineup but manager Paul Lambert believes Lowton should look at this as a challenge to overcome.

Lowton started 37 Premier League games last season and one of Villa's best players but started this season slow and has been benched the last three games in favor of new signing Leandro Bacuna. Lowton has the quality to regain his spot with hard work and it's probably just a matter of time until we see him out on the pitch again. Stay away from Lowton and Bacuna in the time being.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has given confidence to defender Matthew Lowton after leaving him out of the side during the Norwich game this past weekend.

Lowton has been one of Aston Villa's most consistent players since the start of last season but he was left out of the Norwich side because Lambert believes he's gotten a bit too comfortable. The Aston Villa manager reassured us that Lowton has not lost his place in the squad and he started him today in a 4-0 loss to Tottenham. Lowton should be a regular going forward.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has warned Matthew Lowton not to relax with all the praise he has gotten.

Lowton has performed well and has been praised for his play, but Lambert has reminded him to try to improve and continue working hard. Even with Villa signing a new centre-back, Lowton probably shouldn't worry about his starting spot unless his performance slows down.

Aston Villa have confirmed the transfer of Jores Okoro from FC Nordjaelland.

The transfer is reported to be around £4m and Okore is getting a four year deal at Villa Park. The Danish international can improve the Villa defense immediately at the centre-back position. Paul Lambert continues to improve his team so they don't have to fight to avoid relegation again.
