The English Championship duo of Aston Villa and Huddersfield Town are eyeing a transfer for Stoke City defender Ashley Williams ahead of the resumption of the transfer window this summer.
This is according to the widespread reports in the media in the United Kingdom.
The specific report from The Sun claimed that both Aston Villa and Huddersfield Town want to sign the Welsh international centre back.
Ashley Williams is on loan at Stoke City whom he joined from Premier League club Everton during last summer’s transfer window.
He’s expected to leave the Toffees when the summer transfer window reopens and several clubs are already on his trail.
Aston Villa are keen on a move for him and the Midlands club could be playing Premier League football next season with the former European champions in contention for promotion via the Championship playoffs.
On the other hand, Huddersfield Town will certainly play their football in the English Championship next season after they suffered relegation from the Premier League earlier this month.
The Terriers have had a very poor season and they are confirmed as the basement club for this Premier League campaign.
Other clubs like New York City and D.C. United are also keen on a move for Ashley Williams who came close to joining Arsenal from Welsh side Swansea City when Arsene Wenger was in charge of the team.
