Aston Villa: Villans linked with Brandon Williams

Aston Villa: Villans linked with Brandon Williams -Aston Villa News

Aston Villa could make a move for Manchester United full-back Brandon Williams, according to Birmingham Live.

The Lowdown: Williams profiled

The youngster is primarily a left-back who can also line out at right-back and is entering the final two years of his contract at Old Trafford.

Described as ‘great in the air’ by his former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the past, the 21-year-old has made 50 senior appearances for United but spent last season on loan with Norwich City.

The Englishman, who is known for his speed, made 29 appearances for the Canaries, and it looks as if he could be on the move again this summer.

The Latest: Villa linked with Williams

Birmingham Live reporter John Townley, who focuses mainly on Villa, shared a story on Monday morning looking at Steven Gerrard’s left-back ranks.

With Ashley Young still yet to sign a new deal in the Midlands, Townley said that the club could be interested in a move for Williams. The 21-year-old is worth just £10m and is seemingly available to leave Manchester United this summer, with Townley saying that the defender’s versatility could be of use to Gerrard.

Williams at Villa Park?

The Verdict: Cheaper option

As Townley mentions, Williams would be a cheaper option than fellow Villa targets Calvin Bassey and Aaron Hickey, with Rangers and Bologna looking for £25m and £18m respectively.

Williams has also been compared to Hickey by Football Transfers and would provide an option at right-back, another area where Villa are short, with Matty Cash the only senior option available to Gerrard last season.

Aston Villa fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

He already has plenty of Premier League experience and is still in the early stages of his career, so a move to the Midlands could be a shrewd one to provide competition to Lucas Digne.
