Aston Villa & Celtic in nine-club transfer war to snap up Wales attacker

According to reports from The Daily Mail, Aston Villa and Celtic are amongst nine clubs targeting Leicester City youngster Tom Lawrence for a loan move.

The Foxes signed the 22-year-old from Manchester United during the 2014 summer transfer window after making his first-team debut just a matter of months previous under Ryan Giggs.

But the Wales international hasn’t quite hit the heights expected at the King Power Stadium, managing just three Premier League appearances for the English champions – none of which came as they lifted last term’s title.

Instead, the attacking midfielder has spent spells out on loan with Rotherham, Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City, making a combined 35 Championship appearances for the latter two clubs last season.

According to The Daily Mail, Leicester are prepared to let the youngster go out on loan again next season and he’s certainly not sort of summer suitors.

Indeed, Aston Villa, Brighton, Celtic, Derby County, Fulham, Hull City, Nottingham Forest, Swansea City and Wolves have all made enquiries into Lawrence’s availability.
