Aston Villa boss Dean Smith targets goalkeeper signing

Aston Villa boss Dean Smith is in the market for a new goalkeeper.

The Mirror says Smith wants to cap his £100million spending spree by landing a keeper.

Villa have already backed their manager with 10 signings after winning promotion.

Smith has made no secret that he is looking for a new No.1 and may turn to Cardiff's Neil Etheridge.

Etheridge played under Smith at Walsall and Villa have already had a £9m offer rejected.

Stoke's Jack Butland and Burnley's Tom Heaton have both been on Villa's radar for a while.

But Stoke's £25m valuation on Butland has scared Villa off. And while Burnley price Heaton at a more affordable £7m, the 33-year-old does not offer long-term value.
