Aston Villa and Derby County will be interested in signing Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid on loan in the summer transfer window, according to The Mirror.

It has been reported that Madrid are open to sending Odegaard out on loan to a club in the Championship this summer.

Steve Bruce’s Villa and Frank Lampard’s Derby will reportedly be interested in securing the services of the 19-year-old, who can operate as an attacking midfielder or as a winger.

 

Promising talent

Odegaard is a hugely promising young attacking player who has a lot of potential and is a future superstar.

The Norway international has been on the books of Madrid since 2015 when he moved from Stromsgodset for a transfer fee reported by The Mirror to be worth £3 million.

The youngster has yet to break into the Madrid first team, and he spent the past 18 months out on loan at Heerenveen.

The Norwegian would be a good signing for Villa or Derby in the summer transfer window, but one should not expect too much from the 19-year-old.
