According to The Sun via HITC, Aston Villa are considering a move for Barnsley defender Liam Lindsay in this summer’s transfer window.
Lindsay joined Barnsley from Partick Thistle in 2017 and has made 79 appearances for his English club in all competitions.
The 23-year-old will see his current deal at Oakwell expire in June 2020, though, which suggests that he might be available this summer.
According to The Sun via HITC, Villa could swoop for the defender at the end of the season, with a transfer fee of £2.5m mentioned in the report.
Lindsay has been a regular for Barnsley in League One this season, whilst he made 42 Championship appearances for the club last term.

The Villa fans have been on social media reacting to the suggestions of interest.
And it would be fair to say that they are split when it comes to whether the 6ft 3in powerhouse would be a good signing for the club.
