James-Ward Prowse next club odds: Aston Villa clear favourites to land Southampton captain

ASTON VILLA are in the driving seat to land Southampton's set-piece specialist James Ward-Prowse, according to the bookies.

It was reported Aston Villa had a £25million bid for the 26-year-old rejected as they look to bolster their midfield this summer.

Villa have already signed Norwich ace Emi Buendia for £35m and their pursuit of Ward-Prowse is unrelated to the potential exit of their main man Jack Grealish.

Villa are huge favourites to land Ward-Prowse at 3/2 with Sky Bet.

They are a much shorter price compared to their nearest rivals Tottenham and Leeds in the bookies' market.

Spurs are second favourites at 12/1 ahead of Leeds who are third in line at 14/1.

While sensational moves to Manchester United and Real Madrid being massive outside possibilities.

Villa boss Dean Smith is keen to improve Villa's chances from set-piece by acquiring a dead-ball specialist.

Smith sees Ward-Prowse as one of the best set-piece takers in Europe.

With Jack Grealish the most-fouled player in the Premier League, the addition of Ward-Prowse would be a major weapon for Villa.
