Journalist thinks it would be silly for Aston Villa to sell Kortney Hause to West Ham

It would be silly for Aston Villa to sell defender Kortney Hause to West Ham this summer, says Express & Star journalist Luke Hatfield.

Hause, who was on the bench for Villa in their recent 3-2 defeat to Watford, has been linked with a move to the London Stadium.

According to Football Insider, West Ham have set their sights on the 26-year-old as they look to sign a new centre-back before the transfer window closes.

Hause is not a first-team regular, with Dean Smith once again going with a central defensive partnership of Tyrone Mings and Ezri Konsa for that loss against Xisco Munoz’s men. Nevertheless, Hatfield believes selling the Englishman to the Hammers would be a bad idea.

“I think it’d be silly for Villa to sell someone like Hause,” Hatfield told FFC. “They have signed a centre-back in Axel Tuanzebe, but really their only left-sided cover for Tyrone Mings is Hause. He’s been a good servant for Villa.

“I’d be very surprised if Villa considered a sale.”

It is definitely one to keep an eye on. West Ham have struggled to sign their other centre-back targets, namely Kurt Zouma and Nikola Milenkovic.

Considering that, it probably would not be a surprise to see them make a serious push for someone like Hause.
