Aston Villa: Discussions underway for Todd Cantwell

Aston Villa: Discussions underway for Todd Cantwell -Aston Villa

Aston Villa have made contact and are in discussions with Norwich City over a deal for Todd Cantwell, Football Insider report.

The Lowdown: Grealish’s exit

As we now know, Jack Grealish is no longer an Aston Villa player. He became the most expensive signing by a British club, joining Manchester City in a deal worth £100m.

Grealish has signed a six-year deal at the Etihad and will wear the number ten shirt vacated by Sergio Aguero, with Villa’s attention now on bringing in reinforcements following his exit.

Sky Sports believed Villa were expected to pursue Cantwell if Grealish left, and it seems as if they are doing just that.

The Latest: Source shares update

According to Football Insider, who were informed by a Villa source, the club are working on a deal for the 23-year-old.

Discussions are ongoing, so contact has been made, with Villa keen to make Cantwell their fourth big-money signing of the summer after Emiliano Buendia, Leon Bailey and Danny Ings.

Cantwell, who is under the same agency as Manchester United’s Jadon Sancho, has rebuffed attempts to extend his Carrow Road deal.

Villa have made some unusual signings in the past, can you identify some? First up, who is this who Villa landed in 2016?

The Verdict: Good planning

Villa, as Christian Purslow admitted, have planned for Grealish’s exit, and it appears as if Cantwell, who has 15 assists to his name in his fledgling senior career, is their main attacking midfield target.

It’s good to see that Villa are already acting on bringing in a replacement, but it could take upwards of £40-£50m to sign the Norwich man.

You’d expect Villa would want to secure a deal relatively quickly with the new season just around the corner, so there could well be significant developments over the weekend on what has the potential to be a second record signing of the summer at Villa Park.
