Anderlecht fullback Jelle van Damme is a surprise target for Aston Villa.

The Daily Mail says the Belgian international has improved since his early days at Southampton and is on the list for a few Premier League clubs. At 6ft 4ins tall he can play at centre half or at left-back and his versatility is appealing.

Villa have watched him several times as they check on various targets in the Belgian Jupiter League and at 25 he still has time to improve.
