Aston Villa are reported to be monitoring the progress of young Leeds defender Tom Lees. This is sort of a transfer rumour because Aston Villa aren’t in pole position nor talking to the club. The 22-year old England defender is very highly rated by Leeds and he has won admirers from the SPL, Championship and Premier League.
Tom Lees has played over 60 games for Leeds and has gone out on loan to Bury and Accrington Stanley where he made a combined 84 appearances. So this isn’t necessarily a very experienced defender.
Other clubs interested are: Celtic, QPR, Wigan and Cardiff.
This is a small link, but nonetheless those that love transfer rumours (such as myself) will enjoy this article. However, although he isn’t a player that Lambert will be particularly chasing, he is definitely being watched, but not for this transfer window. We’ve got the likes of Herd, Clark and Baker who seem to be similar to Lees.
