The report claims that the Villans are in talks with the German centre-back over a possible move in the summer transfer window.
With Villa struggling financially, they can only afford to sign players that are either on loan or a free agent. From that perspective, Huth fits the bill nicely.
It remains to be seen whether they will be able afford him as he earned £38,000 per week as salary at Leicester last season, according to Spotrac.com.
He would be a smart signing for Villa as he would come on a free transfer. However, concerns remain over his injury issues, as he last made a senior appearance in May 2017 and did not play at all last season due to injury problems.
