Chelsea youngster Ethan Ampadu is in high demand with several clubs in battle to sign the 18 year old on loan.
Ampadu was left out of the Blues’ pre-season tour of Japan after Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admitted he wants him to leave on loan.
Lampard said: “Ethan is not here as we’re looking at the possibility of his going on loan for the season.
“I tried to sign Ethan on loan at Derby last year, so I’m a big fan.
“But with the minutes he played last year, I have to think of the bigger picture and the interests of Ethan and of Chelsea.
“The idea that he could play a lot of games somewhere is good for him and we haven’t brought him here while that is up in the air.”
According to Daily Star, Premier League newcomers Aston Villa are in a battle with three German clubs RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen on loan.
The German teams will all offer Ampadu European football next season compared to Aston Villa who are likely to fight for survival in the Premier League next season after just winning promotion.
Chelsea legend John Terry is an assistant coach at Aston Villa and he could use his Chelsea links to win the race for the young defender.
