Aston Villa are moving for Peterborough United striker Dwight Gayle.

The Mail on Sunday says Villa boss Paul Lambert plans to continue his youth revolution at Villa Park with a £3million move for Peterborough striker Gayle.

Lambert helped Villa beat the drop last season by signing young British players including Matt Lowton, Ashley Westwood and Joe Bennett from lower divisions and sees Gayle, 22, in the same mould.
