Aston Villa eyeing Besiktas centre-back Domagoj Vida

Besiktas centre-back Domagoj Vida is back on the radar of Premier League clubs.

Vida has been linked with a move to England since helping Croatia reach the 2018 World Cup final in Russia.

Fotospor reports Aston Villa are monitoring his situation at Besiktas.

The 30-year-old regularly appeared for Croatia as they made it to the final of World Cup 2018, and also has experience at the likes of Dinamo Zagreb and Dynamo Kiev.

Besiktas want around £8.5m for the player, a fee which Villa are likely to deem acceptable as they desperately try to reinforce their defence following their humiliating 6-1 defeat to Manchester City.
