The Daily Mail has reported that Leeds United and Aston Villa are both interested in signing George Saville.

The Millwall midfielder started Saturday's 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough but it looks like he could be on the move.

Leeds and Aston Villa are keen on adding the 25-year-old to their ranks before the transfer shuts, according to The Daily Mail which also states that the London side could make a 'substantial profit' on him.

Saville only joined Millwall for £350,000 from Wolverhampton Wanderers last summer but another transfer might now be in the reckoning.

 

The Whites pocketed around £7.7 million from the sale of Ronaldo Vieira to Sampdoria earlier in the week and Saville would represent a logical replacement for the talented 19-year-old.

Meanwhile, a certain Jack Grealish is also heavily linked with a move away from Aston Villa and Steve Bruce might see Saville as the man to fill the void left by the 22-year-old star if he winds up moving to the Premier League.

The former Chelsea youth managed 10 goals from midfield last season and with two years to run on his contract in London, the Lions can request and expect a handsome fee for his services.
