Aston Villa has shown interest in Steven Defour and thinks that he could be a big help to them finishing in the top 10. Despite the countless number of clubs who are interested in Defour Anderlecht are the only ones who have put in a solid offer. The Belgian is currently thinking about handling in a transfer request so he can sign with Anderlecht.
The Midfielder will be handing in a transfer request despite him knowing the FC Porto don’t want to sign him and consider him as a future prospect. The Anderlecht coach has been interested in the player for years even back when he played for Standard Liege. Steven Defour has never ruled out a move to England and it may happen with interest from Manchester United & Aston Villa. He hasn’t made any appearances with the Portuguese side with only 6 this season, Defour wants a move to salvage a spot with Belgium at the World Cup.
Villa’s coach Paul Lambert wants to bring in some more experienced players to the side hoping that Defour could mentor the younger Midfielders at the club. The Belgian has only made 53 league appearances in nearly 4 years.
