Southampton 'will not entertain bids' for James Ward-Prowse as Aston Villa linked with midfielder after beating Arsenal to Emi Buendia


Aston Villa are looking to splash more cash this summer, with reports they have failed with a bid for Southampton’s England international James Ward-Prowse.

David Ornstein of The Athletic claims the Villa have seen a £25million offer for the 26-year-old turned down by the south coast club.

It is suggested the Saints want ‘far more’ for one of their key players, who signed a new five-year contract last summer, and the sum offered was seen as ‘derisory’.

It is also claimed Villa will return and a second bid is expected.

Manager Dean Smith may be preparing for life after Jack Grealish amid reports he will join Man City this summer.

The Telegraph claimed City had made £100million bid for the England star – a move that would break the British transfer record.

Villa are keen on keeping hold of their main man and have offered him a new contract in a bid to get him to stay.

The Midlands club have been aggressive in the transfer market so far this summer, having already signed Emi Buendia from Norwich for £33million.

Ashley Young also signed on a free transfer after he left Inter Milan.

Villa were also chasing Emile Smith Rowe, but their bids were rejected and he subsequently signed a new contract with Arsenal.

Bayer Leverkusen’s Leon Bailey has also been linked with a move to Villa Park.
