Aston Villa linked with Bristol City defender Adam Webster

Webster impresses for Bristol

Adam Webster joined Bristol City in July of 2018 from Ipswich.

Bristol City are believed to have paid around £3.6m for Webster, who had previously played 53 games for Ipswich.

After signing for Bristol City, Webster immediately cemented himself into their starting eleven.

The towering central defender made 47 appearances across all competitions during the 2018/19 season, scoring three.

Now, according to Bristol’s local paper the Bristol Post, Aston Villa are growing confident that they can sign Webster.

The report from the Bristol Post claims that Villa had a £12m offer rejected for Webster last week.

The Championship outfit are said to value Webster at around £30m.

Journalist Alan Nixon has also stated that a move to Villa for Webster is possible.

Nixon also claims that Villa are interested in Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips.

If Villa do land Webster, then he will be the latest addition in a big summer shopping spree by the newly-promoted club.

Dean Smith’s side have already signed Brazilian forward Wesley for a reported club-record fee.

Aston Villa have also signed Jota from rivals Birmingham City, as well as agreeing permanent deals for both Anwar El Ghazi and Kortney Hause.

The Telegraph’s chief football writer Sam Wallace also reported on Saturday that Villa had agreed to sign Matt Targett from Southampton.
