Aston Villa is thought to be in a race to land one of League One’s most exciting prospects as the January transfer window edges closer to its deadline.
According to a report by Football Insider, Dean Smith is believed to be about to rival a number of Championship clubs for Luton Town’s James Justin.
It is claimed that The Villans could face a battle with Stoke City for the 20-year-old with Nathan Jones keen to reunite with him.
The full-back has been impressive with his performances for The Hatters as they look to win promotion to the second tier.
Smith is keen to add a right-back to his squad this winter and is thought to have made the position a top priority this January.
Smith’s side have had trouble keeping goals out of the back of their net this season, having conceded 46 goals in the Championship so far.
Justin is viewed as one of the game’s most exciting and promising full-backs and Aston Villa would do well to have him in their ranks.
The 20-year-old, who has featured for England in their Under-20 level, can also offer The Villans some versatility at the back and give them some much-needed strength in the final part of the campaign.
