Aston Villa eager to lure Crystal Palace midfielder Jedinak

Aston Villa are planning to sell midfielder Ashley Westwood to Burnley to fund their move for Crystal Palace midfielder Mile Jedinak, according to the Daily Mirror.

Villa manager Roberto Di Matteo has had the worst possible start to his time at the club with successive defeats to Sheffield Wednesday and Luton Town in the Championship and EFL Cup respectively.

The Italian is now looking to strengthen his midfield and has identified Australia international Jedinak as the perfect recruit.

The 32-year-old was recently removed from the Palace captaincy by manager Alan Pardew and could be on the move if the offer from Villa suits all parties.

In order to fund the move, Villa are willing to offload Westwood to Premier League returnees Burnley who have struggled to attract players to Turf Moor this summer.
