“£20m minimum”, “Having a laugh” – Plenty of AVFC fans react to reported interest in 5 ft 11 ace


According to The Daily Star, Leeds United are considering a £7.5m move for Aston Villa defender James Chester in this summer’s transfer window.

The Whites sold Pontus Jansson to Brentford earlier this month and are currently short of experienced options in central defence.

According to The Daily Star, Chester has emerged as a potential target for Marcelo Bielsa’s side, who are currently in Australia preparing for the 2019-20 campaign.

Chester could find himself out of favour at Villa Park in the new season with Tyrone Mings, Kortney Hause, Ezri Konsa and Bjorn Engels all arriving this summer.

A knee injury saw the 30-year-old miss the latter stages of the 2018-19 campaign, which ended with promotion via the playoffs.

The Villa fans have been on social media commenting on the transfer rumour.

And whilst many are not too bothered about keeping Chester, there is a general feeling that £7.5m is not enough to convince the club to sell the 5 ft 11 ace.
