Aston Villa continue ‘talks’ and Tottenham transfer ‘enquiry’ made

All the latest Aston Villa news and transfer rumours as Steven Gerrard and his men prepare for the new season.

Aston Villa are now putting the final touches on their preparations for the new season.

Steven Gerrard and his men will take on newly promoted Bournemouth away from home to begin their season.

And they will begin the coming campaign armed with a number of new signings, including the likes of Diego Carlos, Philippe Coutinho and Boubacar Kamara.

It has been a busy summer for Villa, and there are big expectations heading into the new campaign.

As the start of the season draws ever closer, we have wrapped up all the latest news and transfer rumours surrounding Villa Park.

Villa enquiry revealed

Villa are said to have made an enquiry for Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.

Ndombele is set to leave Spurs this summer despite arriving at the club on a £54million deal, failing to impress since.

The midfielder spent the second half of last season with Lyon on a loan spell, and he could now leave amid a number of new signings at Tottenham this summer.

According to CBS Sports journalist Ben Jacobs, Villa made an enquiry for Ndombele, but that was back in January.

“There has been no source from the Premier League who has said they are interested in the player at this stage,” he said, as per Birmingham Live.

“The only club who I can tell you made an enquiry in January with a view to this window was Aston Villa. But they haven’t materialised or advanced that in any way, shape or form. If he goes, and I think that’s likely, I see him leaving the Premier League.”

Luiz talks

Villa are said to be working on a new contract for Douglas Luiz, despite being tipped to sell him this summer.

According to Birmingham Live, Gerrard wants Luiz to stay and is still locked in contract negotiations with him.

Luiz is now in the final year of his contract, and Villa could be forced to sell unless they can agree a deal.
