Aston Villa launching bid for Bristol City defender Adam Webster

Aston Villa are launching a bid for Bristol City defender Adam Webster.

The Sun says Villa boss Dean Smith needs two defenders after Axel Tuanzebe returned to Manchester United, while Bournemouth are haggling over a fee for Tyrone Mings.

Smith's money-men will back him with a bid of around £12million for Webster, who only joined Lee Johnson's club from Ipswich a year ago.

Villa have been rebuffed so far but their interest is bound to appeal to Webster, who could make a quick move into the top-flight.

Tuanzebe is set to be involved in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's pre-season games at United.

Meanwhile, Villa refuse to overpay for Mings after reviving his career in a successful loan spell.
