Aston Villa considering hijacking Jack Harrison's loan move to Everton

Aston Villa consider hijacking Jack Harrison’s loan move to Everton after Emiliano Buendia’s knee injury, with the Leeds winger yet to agree a deal after undergoing a medical on Merseyside

  • Jack Harrison had a medical at Everton on Sunday ahead of a planned loan move
  • Aston Villa are now also considering a move for the Leeds winger

Jack Harrison is a possible late target for Aston Villa despite the Leeds winger having a medical at Everton. 

Villa desperately need a wide player after Emiliano Buendia sustained knee ligament damage in training last week, which will mean a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Harrison nearly joined Leicester last January and is admired by a number of Premier League clubs following Leeds’ relegation last season.

He missed Leeds’ 1-0 defeat at Birmingham on Saturday due to injury but the problem is not thought to be long-term.

If the 26-year-old does return to the Premier League, he could be a handy addition after scoring 21 goals in the past three seasons.

He also picked up 10 assists across competitions last season despite playing in a struggling Leeds side. 

Villa also fear Tyrone Mings has suffered serious damage to his knee with the defender facing a lengthy absence that adds to the club’s mounting injury crisis.

The England centre back was carried off on a stretcher after 31 minutes and became the fourth key first-team player out of action, with Alex Moreno, Jacob Ramsey and Emiliano Buendia also on the sidelines.

They were due to learn more on Mings’ injury on Sunday.
