Aston Villa have now been joined by Tottenham in the race to sign Stoke City defender Harry Souttar, according to Football Insider.

But it appears as if Villa will now have to battle Spurs for Souttar’s services…
Where should Villa add to in January?
The Latest: Spurs join race
According to Football Insider, who were informed by a Tottenham source, Spurs are looking to beat Villa in the race for Souttar.
They have watched the centre-back on multiple occasions already this season and are keeping tabs on on his situation ahead of the January window.
The Verdict: Chukwuemeka 2.0
Villa and Johan Lange pipped Daniel Levy in the race to sign teenage forward Caleb Chukwuemeka over the summer, and the two may well battle it out again for Souttar in 2022.
Spurs have five, so Souttar may get a better chance of first-team football in the Midlands over north London.
A transfer could well be one to keep a close eye on over the coming months, but it appears as if Villa need Souttar’s services more than Tottenham do.
