Report: Villa and Newcastle scouts in attendance at La Liga match last weekend

Aston Villa and Newcastle United scouts were reportedly in attendance during Sevilla's match against Levante last weekend.

Aston Villa and Newcastle United both had scouts watching Sevilla's game against Levante last weekend, according to a report in the Sunderland Echo.

The two Premier League sides will be looking to strengthen their squads in the summer and it appears that they have already started to draw up a list of targets.

Both Villa and Newcastle have had disappointing seasons this year and will require an injection of quality in the upcoming transfer window if they are to improve on their showings next term.

La Liga is a league packed with talent, which is often not as expensively priced as England, and Villa and Newcastle clearly feel it is a ripe market.

The English club's scouts saw the likes of Kevin Gameiro, Vitolo and Nabil El-Zhar on display in Sevilla's game in Levante, which was an entertaining encounter.

Sevilla won the match 2-1 and Villa and Newcastle supporters will be hoping that the reports on their targets from the match were positive.

Both Villa and Newcastle need additions throughout their squads and they could be among the most active clubs in the Premier League over the summer.
