​Aston Villa set to make fresh bid for Southampton skipper Ward-Prowse

Aston Villa are set to put in another bid for Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse.

The England international, who is known for his all action central midfield displays and excellent set piece deliveries, is in demand this summer.

The Daily Mail reports that Villa are pushing ahead with signings to compensate for the impending loss of Jack Grealish to Manchester City.

Leon Bailey is close to arriving from Bayer Leverkusen, while they would like to do a deal for Ward-Prowse as well.

A £25 million bid was rejected by the Saints, who view the midfielder as essential to their plans.

But Villa will not be deterred, and another bid is expected in the coming days.
