It has been reported by the British tabloid that Chester is keen on playing in MLS after struggling for playing time at Villa so far this season.
However, according to the report, the Villans will not sell the 30-year-old Wales international central defender leave on the cheap, as they will want to sign a replacement for him.
Chester has been on the books of Villa since the summer of 2016 when he joined from West Bromwich Albion for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be more than £8 million and when Roberto Di Matteo was in charge of the Villans.
The Wales international made 45 appearances in the Championship in 2016-17 and played 49 games in the league in 2017-18 for Villa, but he managed 28 matches in the second division for the Villans last season, according to Whoscored.
