Premier League and link up with his former Liverpool team-mates — by lining up a move to Aston Villa in the January transfer window.The 34-year-old played alongside Villa boss Steven Gerrard at Anfield between 2011 and 2014, with Philippe Coutinho joining a year later from Inter Milan.The trio played a key role in the Reds’ title charge in the 2013-14, narrowly missing out to Manchester City after Liverpool’s poor form towards the end of the season.Suarez went on to join Barcelona in 2014 for £75m, Gerrard left for LA Galaxy a year later and Coutinho headed to Camp Nou in a record £142m switch in January 2018.But now, with Suarez seemingly keen for more regular football, reports in Spain suggest the striker — now at Atletico Madrid — is willing to reunite with his former Kop pals in the Midlands with Aston Villa.According to Spanish transfer expert Gerard Romero, the Uruguayan has put all other offers on hold and is ‘focused’ on securing a move to reunite with Gerrard before the transfer window shuts.Unsurprisingly, both Villa and Liverpool fans are excited about the prospect of seeing Suarez return to England after seven years away.One social media user praised Gerrard's business in the transfer market: "If this is true, Gerrard is doing bits."Another Twitter user tweeted: "Aston Villa are serious.

Prince Andrew would 'shout and scream' if maids touched his teddy bears
Prince Andrew would have raging temper tantrums and "shout and scream" if maids rearranged the 60-odd teddy bears piled on top of his bed, an ITV documentary claims.Former member of the Royal Protection Command Paul Page, told journalist Ranvir Singh about the prince's weird attachment to the collection of stuffed toys on the documentary, Ghislaine, Prince Andrew and the Paedophile.The ex-royal copper, who provided security for the Royal Family between 1998 and 2004 and who had access to the duke's apartment, alleges that the Queen's favourite son had a bed piled high with "50 to 60" stuffed teddy bears.Page also claims Prince Andrew, who was recently stripped of his military and royal titles, would fly into fits of rage if he saw that the stuffed toys were out of place after the maids had been in the room.Page said: “It had about 50 or 60 stuffed toys positioned on the bed and basically there was a card the inspector showed us in a drawer and it was a picture of these bears all in situ.“The reason for the laminated picture was if those bears weren’t put back in the right order by the maids, he would shout and scream.”These are not the only teddy bears the disgraced duke allegedly owns. In 2009, journalist Elizabeth Day interviewed the Queen's middle son at his Buckingham Palace apartment.
