Former Premier League player Darren Bent has suggested that Hull City winger Jarrod Bowen could be on his way to Aston Villa due to his father's connection to the club.
Bent further added that the club's history and size could be enough to motivate the player to make the move to Villa Park.
Bowen has not only been linked with Aston Villa but also Premier League rivals Southampton, Newcastle United and Brighton and Hove Albion.
In other transfer news, Villa have been linked with a move for midfielder Adrien Tameze who is playing for Ligue 1 side Nice
According to the Daily Telegraph, John McGinn's ankle injury which he sustained in his side's 3-1 defeat to Southampton last weekend has inspired Dean Smith to enquire about Tameze's services.
Burnley and Southampton have also expressed their interest in the central midfielder.
