Report claims Tottenham Hotspur back on Andre Green trail, two years after failing to sign Aston Villa winger

Steve Bruce, Manager of Aston Villa during the The Emirates FA Cup Third Round match between Aston Villa and Peterborough United at Villa Park on January 6, 2018 in Birmingham, England.

The Aston Villa winger is said to be attracting interest from Tottenham Hotspur and Bournemouth.

Tottenham Hotspur are back on the trail of Aston Villa's Andre Green following his recovery from injury, according to the Sun.

The newspaper claims Tottenham tried to sign Green two years ago, only for the winger to extend his Villa deal by a further three years instead.

But Spurs, along with Premier League rivals Bournemouth, are again said to be chasing Green, who Villa boss Steve Bruce is hoping can play a big part in the Villans' push for promotion this season.

Tottenham are short on natural wingers after allowing Georges-Kevin N'Koudou to join Burnley on loan earlier this week.

And Aston Villa's financial situation - Bruce's January spending is thought to be severely restricted by FFP - may offer the Londoners and Bournemouth hope of prising Green from Villa Park.

The 19-year-old made his Villa debut in March 2016 and has gone onto play a further 25 times for his local side, scoring once.

Could Green be prised away from Aston Villa this month amid alleged interest from Tottenham Hotspur and Bournemouth?
