Aston Villa are interested in signing Nottingham Forest winger, Joe Lolley.

However, Nottingham Forest reportedly won’t budge from their £15 million valuation of the player, reports the Daily Mail, cited by Birmingham Mail.

It was reported that Villa were preparing a move of around £10 million for the winger.

The winger featured 46 times last season for Forest, scoring 11 goals and setting up 11 more.

Aston Villa are looking for more options at the top end of the field following Tammy Abraham’s return to Chelsea and releasing winger Albert Adomah.

Villa have already signed wingers Anwar El Ghazi and Jota to their attacking options but it seems Dean Smith’s side are no where near done in what will be a busy window.

They have been linked with goalkeeper Jack Butland and Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips as they look to have a solid return to the Premier League.

Previously speaking about his links to Aston Villa, Lolley has said:

I’ve followed the club all my life and I used to sit on the Holte End.

I remember players like Alan Thompson, Paul Merson, that sort of era.

I rarely missed a game back then but obviously playing football every weekend came first.
