Villa to bid for Leeds winger Snodgrass

New Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is chasing Leeds United winger Robert Snodgrass.

New Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is chasing Leeds United winger Robert Snodgrass.

The Daily Record says Snodgrass has just a year left on his Elland Road contract and the Championship club might be tempted to sell before he moves on a Bosman.

Lambert has been handed a kitty of £25million at Villa and could make Snodgrass one of his first buys.

He tried to sign the 24-year-old for Norwich City last summer only to see his bid booted out – but Villa have more financial muscle than the Canaries.

The Carrow Road club are still fuming about Lambert’s exit as Villa have yet to cough up compensation.
