Report: Aston Villa rivalling Swansea City for Reading’s Hal Robson-Kanu

Villa Park 6

Aston Villa and Swansea City are keen on Reading winger Hal Robson-Kanu.

Aston Villa are considering making a move for Hal Robson-Kanu this summer, Get Reading reports.

The winger, a Welsh international, is out of contract this summer, and he is refusing to hold extension talks until the end of the season.

The academy graduate has been at the club for 11 years, but he is said to be keen on returning to the Premier League, as he wants to spend his peak years in the top flight.

At 26-years-old, Robson-Kanu has just entered his best years of football, and the 30-capped international is considering leaving on a Bosman transfer in the summer.

Villa are planning to approach Robson-Kanu in the summer, although any move for the winger will likely depend upon which league the club are in next season. As they are likely to fall into the Championship, the Reading star could consider a transfer to Villa Park as only a sideways move.

Swansea City have also been linked with the winger, with Wales Online reporting that they want to bring the Welsh winger to the Liberty Stadium, knowing that he will be a value signing on a Bosman deal.
