Aston Villa make bid for Dundee United youngster, Lucas Digne considered

Two key transfer updates concerning Premier League outfit Aston Villa have emerged on Sunday.

Aston Villa bid for Dundee United man

The first claims that Aston Villa have made a bid for a Dundee United youngster.

The player in question is Kerr Smith, who is a product of Dundee United’s academy.

Smith was handed his senior debut for Dundee last season and has since made another seven appearances this term.

Smith is a natural centre-back, but the 17-year-old is also capable of playing at right-back, which he has done twice in the 2021/22 campaign so far.

Now, journalist Pete O’Rourke is reporting that Aston Villa have made a bid for Smith.

It is not mentioned how much the bid actually was. But given the fact Smith is only 17 years of age and out of contract in 18 months, it is hard to see Dundee United being able to demand too much:

Though not mentioned, you would assume that should Aston Villa indeed land Smith, the teenager would spend more time with the under-23s than the senior side right now.

Aston Villa in for Lucas Digne

Elsewhere, Aston Villa appear to be considering a move for Everton’s Lucas Digne.

Digne’s desire to leave Everton is well-documented it this point, with the Daily Mail reporting that Villa are considering a bid for the Frenchman.

West Ham, Newcastle and Chelsea are also all believed to be interested in the player who Everton value at £30m.
