Aston Villa have the option to make Kortney Hause’s contract permanent but they need to make a decision soon, according to The Express and Star.
Wolverhampton Wanderers have set a Thursday deadline for Aston Villa to decide on Hause’s future. The Villans can sign the defender for just £3m but they need to wrap this deal up quickly.
The 23-year-old was out of favour at Wolves and Aston Villa signed him in January. Alongside fellow loanee Tyrone Mings, Hause formed a solid centre-back partnership.
Hause was injured towards the end of the season but he played a pivotal role in the turnaround which saw Aston Villa win promotion via the play-offs. He played 12 games and scored once but his main contribution was helping Villa shore up their leaky defence.
Now he waits to learn whether Aston Villa want him back. Dean Smith must make a decision soon and then agree on personal terms with the player.
Hause’s contract with Wolves lasts until summer 2021 but they are willing to let him leave. Aston Villa have first refusal on the player but their option to buy him expires soon.
The former England U21 international could be set for a permanent Molineux exit imminently. After six years and 80 appearances for Wolves, a move to Aston Villa could be on the cards.
