Aston Villa are thought to be interested in the Burnley keeper Tom Heaton.
The Premier League shot-stopper is surplus to requirements at Turf Moor and the Championship club are keen on providing him with an exit route.
Heaton is too good to be a backup and leaving Burnley for regular football makes a lot of sense.
At Aston Villa, he could be their new number one and he would improve Dean Smith’s side a lot as well.
Before his injury and the arrival of Hart, Heaton was sensational for Burnley. He even earned a place in the national team setup. He will be looking to force his way into the England side once again.
It will be interesting to see if the two clubs manage to agree on a deal.
Convincing Burnley to sell should not be a problem. Hart is the number one at Turf Moor now and Nick Pope is a solid back up keeper. Dyche has no need for Heaton now.
Here is how the Villa fans reacted to the links with the £35,000-a-week star.
Pls let this happen ????

That would be an excellent bit of business. Finally get shot of that Norwegian Clown Nyland.
