Aston Villa: West Ham linked with Kortney Hause -Aston Villa

West Ham have added Aston Villa defender Kortney Hause to their list of summer transfer targets, according to Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Hause at Villa

The centre-back, who was described as ‘different class’ by Noel Whelan, initially made the move to Villa Park on loan in January 2019 from Wolves before making the deal permanent that summer.

The 26-year-old has made 46 appearances during his time at Villa Park, but he only featured on seven occasions in the Premier League last season.

Axel Tuanzebe has been brought in on loan this summer by Dean Smith to rival Hause, Tyrone Mings and Ezri Konsa, and it appears as if the former Wolves defender could be made available to leave, according to Football Insider.

Should Villa sell Hause?

The Latest: Source shares update

A West Ham source informed Football Insider that Hause has been added to the club’s list of targets. He is now Villa’s fourth-choice centre-back and may well be on the move before the transfer window closes later this month.

The Hammers are prepared to pay a significant fee for a defender this summer but it is unclear whether or not Villa will be tempted to sell Hause.

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: Keep

Smith only has four senior centre-backs at his disposal, so it would make sense to keep hold of Hause this summer.

Mings and Konsa were almost ever-present figures last season, but if one or even both are unavailable, Villa would be down to the bare bones with just Tuanzebe if they let Hause go.

Should they sell the 26-year-old to West Ham, they would also be strengthening a direct rival. Overall, if Villa have no intention of bringing in another centre-back, they should look to keep hold of Hause for the 2021/22 campaign.
