Aston Villa are looking to sign Harold Moukoudi on loan from Le Havre, according to the Daily Mail.
Celtic are also keen on the defender, but Villa have pushed ahead and made an offer to sign him.
So, would Moukoudi be a good signing for Villa?
There’s a lot of excitement around Moukoudi, he’s hot property in France.
The noises are all good, he’s powerful, quick and strong.
In that respect, yes, it is a good move. My only reservation is whether a young player can settle in a foreign country at such a tender age.
If he can, then this is one to watch.
It’s a bit of a risk, as he doesn’t know the league but that doesn’t mean Villa should swerve at all costs.
He’s certainly young so could well be one worth taking a punt on and seeing how he does.
I think Villa should go for it.
He appears to have all the attributes to adapt to the rigours and demands of the Championship.
The Villans are in need of more defensive reinforcements and this is one that they should look to get secured.
