Report: Aston Villa and QPR both want Kane Hemmings after 25-goals season in Scotland

Dundee striker Kane Hemmings is wanted by Aston Villa and QPR, according to reports.

According to the Daily Mail, Dundee striker Kane Hemmings has become a top target for both Aston Villa and Queens Park Rangers this summer.

Hemmings, 24, has been unable to find a steady home for himself in football so far, as having started out with Tamworth, he joined up with Scottish giants Rangers in 2008, but joined up with Cowdenbeath five years later having failed to make an impact at Ibrox.

24 goals in just 39 games for Cowdenbeath in the 2013-14 season led to Hemmings moving on to Barnsley, but again he struggled, and was released after only a year at Oakwell, scoring just five goals in 28 appearances.

A return to Scotland appears to have sparked Hemmings back into life again though, as he has smashed a stunning 25 goals in 38 games, and he has even been nominated for PFA Scotland's Player of the Year award.

Now though, the Daily Mail report that Hemmings has attracted interest from English clubs again, with Aston Villa and QPR both keen to sign him this summer.

Villa's relegation to the Championship has already been confirmed, and they will need new faces to push for immediate promotion back to the Premier League - and they may see Hemmings as somebody who can provide goals for a struggling side.

Meanwhile, QPR splashed out for Conor Washington in January, but with Hemmings allegedly having a £250,000 release clause in his contract, he wouldn't break the bank for the R's.
