James Bree: Barnsley starlet set to join Aston Villa

According to reports, Aston Villa are close to signing James Bree from Championship rivals Barnsley.

The 19 year old defender will reportedly move for a fee of £3 million.

As reported by the Daily Star:

“Villa boss Steve Bruce is poised to complete a double swoop for Bree and his Tykes team-mate Conor Hourihane.

The Sun claim that Bruce has seen off a host of Premier League opposition to lure Bree to Villa Park.

The Championship outfit will hand the 19-year-old defender a hefty contract, equal with what he would stand to earn in the top-flight.

The report adds that both clubs have agreed terms over a £3m deal.”
