Report: Aston Villa battle Huddersfield Town and DC United for Everton defender Ashley Williams

Ashley Williams has plenty of suitors this summer.

Everton defender Ashley Williams is wanted by Aston Villa and two other clubs, according to The Sun.

Williams is out of contract in the summer and will not be offered a new deal at Goodison Park.

Aston Villa could try to sign the veteran defender on a free transfer but they face competition for his signature.

Huddersfield Town, who are Championship-bound, also want Williams. And MLS side DC United could swoop too.

Williams has played 33 times in the league for the Potters, including 27 starts, but he could not inspire his side to launch a promotion bid.

 

This summer, the 34-year-old needs to look for a new club. But Aston Villa could offer him a contract.

The Villans, who are preparing for the play-offs, have three centre-backs on loan in Kortney Hause, Tyrone Mings and Axel Tuanzebe.

Tommy Elphick and Mile Jedinak are both out of contract at the end of the season so James Chester would be the only remaining centre-half.

Williams has plenty of experience, having played over 350 times for Swansea City before moving to Everton.

But Aston Villa will need to battle for this signing. Williams could instead join former Everton team-mate Wayne Rooney at DC United.
