De Laet Being Released, Villa’s Bid Gets Rejected

It seems like Aston Villa has been rejected for Adam Webster, the defender from Bristol City after their offer stood below the valuation of this player by Robin. This center-back player who has grabbed the interest from Newcastle United, the rivals of Aston Villa in the Premier League, signed from Ipswich Town in the last summer as he agreed to make a move with a 4-year deal at £3.5m.

This means that Robins are not the only one to be under pressure to lose their center-half as his impressive performances have not gone unnoticed. Adam Webster has managed to score 3 goals in forty-seven appearance for the side of Lee Johnson in the previous season and the result of the Ipswich, the former club following his departure had been laid clean after the relegation of Tractor Boys to League One. Webster is twenty-four years old and is all set to make a move in just the opposite way, even if interested clubs increase the desired sum. It has been reported that a bid of about £12m has been rejected by the side of Lee Johnson by saying that it is much below that they consider Webster to be worth.

As a matter of fact, there have been claims that Bristol might be ready to pay £30m if they are tempted to part with Webster, someone they consider to be the best in Championship. Aston Villa has to make an addition to their defense side prior to the beginning of the season, irrespective of the permanent comeback of Kortney Hause. Tyrone Mings for the moment is sticking to Bournemouth, the parent club, while Axel Tuanzebe has made a comeback to Manchester United. Aston Villa has released Ritchie De Laet, Micah Richards, and Alan Hutton. Thus, their back-line is presently much thin.
