Aston Villa are interested in signing Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham according to The Scottish Daily Star, as cited in The Scottish Sun.

The 27-year-old was previously on the books of Fulham, Crystal Palace and Swindon Town before moving north of the border to Rangers in 2015.

The shotstopper has been their no.1 since moving there but according to the report, Steven Gerrard is now set to drop him to third choice behind Allan McGregor and Jak Alnwick.

The Gers are willing to listen to offers and Aston Villa and Ipswich Town are set to battle it out for the ‘keeper.

A safe options for the Villans

After having Sam Johnstone on loan last season, Villa are desperately in need of signing someone for the season ahead, with only Mark Bunn and Jed Steer currently on their books.

Foderingham is valued at £700,000 on Transfermarkt but would likely be available on the cheap considering he wants to leave and the club are listening to offers.

The 6ft1 goalkeeper would be a sensible option for Steve Bruce and has a lot of experience to offer for Villa.
