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

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

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

Aston Villa bid for Dundee United man

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

The player in question is Kerr Smith, who is a product of the Scottish outfit’s academy.

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

He is naturally a 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 has revealed that Aston Villa have made a bid for Smith.

It is not confirmed how much the offer is actually worth. But, given the fact that Smith is only 17 years of age, and out of contract in 18 months, it is hard to imagine that Dundee United would demand too much:

Though not mentioned, it is safe to assume that, should Aston Villa indeed land Smith, the teenager would, initially at least, spend more time with the club’s under-23s than the senior setup.

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 at this point, with the Daily Mail reporting that Villa are mulling over a bid for the Frenchman.

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