Derby County have joined the race to sign Aston Villa full back Matthew Lowton, according to the Telegraph.
Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood wants to overhaul his squad this summer and has named Matthew Lowton on the list of players he’s allowing to leave the club.
He was signed by Villa in 2012 for £3 million, from Sheffield United and has made 69 appearances for the club since.
The defender was linked with a move to Middlesbrough this week as they look for a new right back, after they missed out on promotion this year, losing out to Norwich City who are also interested in Lowton.
The 25-year-old has now been linked with a move Derby County, who appointed Paul Clement as their new manger this week.
He would be the third Villa player to leave Derby bound, as Darren Bent and Andreas Weimann look set to sign for the Rams in the coming weeks.
