Could £3m Kortney Hause deal be Aston Villa's best business?

Aston Villa pulled off a coup over Kortney Hause last month.

Tyrone Mings is the latest big-money addition by Aston Villa this summer.

Mings played a huge role in helping the Villans to Premier League promotion last term and has become a permanent signing, joining Dean Smith's side for £26.5 million [The Sun].

He is the sixth player to join Aston Villa this summer but, in terms of value, there's no beating Kortney Hause.

Hause, also a centre-back, played his part in Villa's success last season, starting 10 Championship games after signing on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers.


And for £3 million [Express & Star], it's an absolute snip.

He has only been with Smith for six months and the Aston Villa boss has already made him a better player. Over the course of his permanent stay, we're talking potentially immense improvement.

Bear in mind that Hause is still only 23. He has many great years left in him. Mings is a fantastic signing and fans of the West Midlands club are delighted to have him back but, in terms of value, there's no beating the business done to get Hause.

A year from now, that deal might be remembered as the best piece of business that Smith did this summer.
