Aston Villa, Newcastle eyeing Angers midfielder Baptiste Santamaria

Angers midfielder Baptiste Santamaria is attracting big Premier League interest.

L' Equipe says Aston Villa, Newcastle United and Everton are all weighing up a move for Santamaria, who has a contract with Angers until 2022.

Angers are keen to extend the 24-year-old's deal, but interest from the Premier League could make that difficult.

Villa could step up their interest after news that John McGinn faces three months out with a fractured ankle.

Santamaria has one goal in 19 appearances for Angers, who currently find themselves 8th in Ligue 1.
