Report: Aston Villa and Newcastle remain interested in Diego Rolan

St James Park

Aston Villa and Newcastle United are reportedly interested in Diego Rolan of Bordeaux.

Premier League duo Aston Villa and Newcastle United are still interested in signing Diego Rolan from Bordeaux this summer, according to France Football.

The French publication has not provided any further details, though.

Good signing?

Rolan is one of the better players in the current Bordeaux squad, and he is only 22 years of age.

The Uruguay international striker has been on the books of Bordeaux since 2013 and is one of the most important players for the team.

The youngster scored 15 goals and created 32 chances in 36 Ligue 1 appearances last season.

The 22-year-old had a pass accuracy of 81% and a shot accuracy of 48%, and won 23 headers, 28 dribbles and 29 tackles.

During the 2013-14 campaign, Rolan scored two goals and created 15 chances in 18 league matches for Bordeaux.

Rolan is still young, which means that Villa and Newcastle will have to be patient with him if they do sign him this summer.

The Uruguayan should not be expected to take the Premier League by storm and must be afforded time to settle into life in England.
