The Metro has reported that Aston Villa are interested in Tottenham right-back Kyle Naughton. It’s believed that the defender would be allowed to leave White Harte Lane this January for a fee of £3 million. Naughton, 25 previously played under Lambert at Norwich two years ago during his season-long loan. A move could possibly see Naughton reunited with the same manager that gave him his League break. Naughton is capable of also playing in the left-back position, an area where Aston Villa have struggled of late.
Naughton for £3 million would be a very, very good signing. He is a solid defender who can play both left and right back, something I’m sure Lambert would like. Antonio Luna has failed to impress and the arrival of Naughton would give Lambert another option. His arrival would also allow Bacuna to cement a place in Villa’s midfield which would do him well. Bacuna has often had to fill the role of both Lowton and Luna, Naughton would instead do that job, if brought in. However I don’t see Naughton leaving Tottenham in all honesty. Yes he’s behind Kyle Walker who is much younger but he still frequently plays for Tottenham. If Lambert where to get a Tottenham player for £3 million I’d be seriously impressed. Tottenham are the worst team to do business because they always demand high transfer fees.
