Petrov: New blood needed
Stiliyan Petrov hopes Aston Villa will strengthen their squad before the transfer window closes next week.
Petrov says Aston Villa need to bolster their squad after key loses including right-back Luke Young to QPR.
Young is one of several players to exit Villa Park this summer and the Bulgarian international hopes Villa will replace them.
"It would be nice if we could bring some more bodies. It seems like everybody is strengthening their teams.
"But we've still got Habib Beye, Eric Lichaj, Chris Herd, so We've got people to play in that position," he said.
Petrov has taken heart from Villa's unbeaten start to the campaign.
"It is good. It is very important, every single point. We have started well, we are unbeaten, we are still going strongly, have only conceded one goal in three games.
"We have got a lot of things to improve in our game but they will come. It is still the early part of the season," he said.
