Aston Villa: Villans interested in Wayne Hennessey

Aston Villa: Villans interested in Wayne Hennessey - Aston Villa

Aston Villa and Chelsea have been credited with an interest in free agent Wayne Hennessey, according to The Daily Mail.

The Lowdown: Villa a goalkeeper short

Villa only have two senior goalkeepers on the books after Tom Heaton left the club. Heaton has since joined Manchester United, so Dean Smith may have only Jed Steer as backup to Emiliano Martinez, with Lovre Kalinic also likely to depart.

Villa’s current transfer priority is a number 10, but it seems as if they are also keeping an eye on bolstering their options at the very back.

Should Villa sign a goalkeeper this summer?

The Latest: Simon Jones’ claim

Simon Jones, described as The Daily Mail’s insider, posted the news on Tuesday afternoon. He claimed that both Villa and the Blues, along with Burnley, are keen on the Wales international after his deal with Crystal Palace expired.

Hennessey made 132 appearances for Palace, but just one of those came during the 2020/21 campaign.

Villa fans! Which club did AVFC sign James Milner from?

The Verdict: A smart option

The 34-year-old has huge experience at both club and international level. He has turned out on 96 occasions for his country, 181 times in the Premier League and 93 in the Championship.

His Selhurst Park deal was worth £40,000 per week and Wales ‘keeper Danny Ward recently described Hennessey’s support as ‘incredible’ in and around the camp. If he is willing to serve as backup to Martinez, signing Hennessey could be a shrewd move by Aston Villa.
