Breaking News ! Aston Villa have been linked with teenage left-back Aaron Hickey from Hearts, reports up in Scotland claim. The 18-year-old featured 22 times for the Edinburgh club last term in what was Hickey's breakthrough season in the Scottish top-flight. Hearts, though, dropped down a division and, according to the Daily Record, teenager Hickey is a top transfer priority for Italian side Bologna. Villa and Bayern Munich are also said to be in for the full-back who'd cost in the region of £1.5 million.
. Regarding Villa's transfer stance, it's believed new sporting director Johan Lange will identify a new full-back given the likes of Neil Taylor and Ahmed Elmohamady are on dwindling contracts. The Scottish market is well-trusted by Villa given the acquisition of John McGinn from Hibernian in 2018 for just £2.75 million. As far as Scottish full-backs go, the likes of Andrew Robertson and Kieran Tierney enjoyed excellent seasons for Liverpool and Arsenal respectively.
