Report: Premier League club now want to sign 'incredible' Aston Villa player and he wants to leave

Bournemouth want to sign Aston Villa central defender Kortney Hause.

TalkSPORT report is one of three central defensive targets Scott Parker is eyeing before the start of the Premier League season.

Parker wants at least two of them landed before the big kick-off and one of his other targets is Liverpool’s Nat Phillips, who spent the second half of last season on loan with the Cherries.

The other is Axel Tuanzebe of Manchester United, who spent the first half of last term at Villa on loan, before an unsuccessful spell with Napoli.

Bournemouth want Hause

Hause only signed a new deal with Villa earlier this year but injury has frustrated him since then and he has slipped down the central defensive pecking order.

Calum Chambers and Diego Carlos have been signed by Steven Gerrard and the Daily Mail claim that means Hause wants a move now.

That could bode well for Bournemouth’s hopes of getting a quick deal done, and they actually host Villa on the opening weekend a week today.

It remains to be seen which club Hause is representing by the time that particular afternoon rolls around.

In January, he was linked with a move to West Ham but that did not materialise and then he signed his new deal.

Hause has done well when called upon, most notably against Manchester United last season, when he scored a late winner at Old Trafford and kept Cristiano Ronaldo at bay throughout.

Ashley Preece of the Claret & Blue Podcast sung Hause’s praises after the game.

“He was incredible today,” he said, as transcribed by the Birmingham Mail. “He pocketed Ronaldo. Ronaldo was very quiet. Hause was winning all the aerial duels.”

That gives an indication of why Bournemouth want him and it remains to be seen what they can do between this weekend and next.
