Aston Villa target January deal for Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie

Aston Villa are targeting a January deal for Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie.

The midfielder, 23, was available late in this summer's market — but no club would commit to a loan deal that would also include a guaranteed buy.

The Sun says Villa are keen on the former Schalke player, who has been told he can find a new home as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, Villa are likely to be without key men Emiliano Martinez and Emi Buendia with the pair facing a long quarantine.

The Argentina pair will stay the entire length of the international break in South America.

Because the country is on the red list they will have to quarantine at a government-approved hotel for ten days when they return.
