Aston Villa chase Daniel Amartey

Amartey joined Leicester City from Danish side FC Copenhagen[/caption] Daniel Amartey has emerged as a target for Aston Villa as the Championship side seek to secure a loan deal for the defender. The versatile defender, who can also play at central midfield, has been a fringe player for Leicester City this season after the signing of Wilfred Ndidi last year. His role has been reduced to the bench, following a seeming drop in his performances in recent months. According to the Telegraph, Amartey has been targeted by Villa manager Steve Bruce, who wants the midfielder to join his ranks and help secure promotion to the Premier League next season. Per the report, Villa are cash-strapped and can only afford loan deals this month. They have targeted Amartey and Leonardo Ulloa. Amartey signed for the Foxes in January 2016, while Claudio Ranieri was in charge of the club, but his game time reduced drastically when the Italian was sacked soon after.
