Aston Villa were heavily linked with a summer move for Norwich City star Todd Cantwell.
After selling Jack Grealish for a Premier League record fee of £100million, reports suggested that Villa would explore the possibility of signing Cantwell as his replacement.
Cantwell’s performances for Norwich in the Premier League and the Championship over the last few seasons have caught the eye of several clubs.
However, Dean Smith’s side were credited the ones with the strongest link to the 21-year-old after Grealish became the most expensive British footballer in history.
Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth told the Transfer Show of Cantwell’s future at the time.
“I am told it would take a significant offer for Norwich to even consider a sale for Cantwell in this transfer window.
“I have heard figures upward of £40 and £50million before Norwich would consider a sale of Cantwell.”
Villa will be able to negotiate terms with Cantwell as the final months of his contract run down, however, Norwich do have an option to extend the deal by a further 12 months – to the summer of 2023.
