Premier League relegation threatened Aston Villa is finding ways to rescue the club from the difficulties. The team from Villa Park is currently at the bottom of the league, at the 20th position. Nothing is working well for the club and the management is looking to get in new players to fix the ever increasing problems for The Villians. To start with, the club is looking for potential replacements in the defence. The Sun claims that Aston Villa is currently targeting former Manchester United player, Michael Keane.

Keane was sent on loan to Burnley on 2nd September 2014, from Manchester United. The loan was made permanent on January 8, 2015 for an undisclosed fee as the defender signed a three and a half year contract with Burnley. The Sun on Sunday report that Remi Garde’s side are behind the Burnley defender and want to sign the youngster. Aston Villa has been eyeing the 22 year old defender since a long time and it is believed that the club kept close tabs on the player. Scouts were sent to witness Keane play for Burnley and closely notice his game play.

Keane is a young talent at Burnley, the Stockport born lad also represents England in the U21s. Being signed by the Red Devils in 2011, Keane has been sent on loan to several clubs namely Leicester City, Derby County, Blackburn Rovers and then finally signed a permanent deal at Burnley. Keane is also on the shopping list of Everton as the Merseyside team is also in the race to sign the Championship defender
