The Birmingham Mail say that Villa are keen on Sheffield United right-back Matthew Lowton.

The report claims he is the sort of player that will fit what Lambert wants ‘highly rated, young and hungry`… Sounds perfect, assemble a team of players wanting to prove themselves and proud to be at a great club like Aston Villa!

Wiki says: Matthew John Lowton (born 9 June 1989 in Chesterfield, England) is an English footballer, who plays for English side Sheffield United. He plays as a right-back, but can also operate at centre-back, central midfield and as a right-midfielder.

Blades official site says: “A local lad and a product of the Blades Academy, Matt signed a new long-term contract with the Blades in the summer of 2011. He is a tall, quick defender who can operate in a number of roles across the backline or in midfield – he made his United debut as a late substitute in March 2010, at Cardiff.”

The Mail also say that Alan Hutton has not been transfer listed but is under pressure.

They also link Crystal Palace defender Nathaniel Clyne which I must have missed. The other two right backs, Spurs Kyle Naughton and Forest`s Chris Gunter we`ve had links to before.

Palace official site says: “His pace and excellent attacking ability, coupled with his natural ability to read the game, immediately lead to a prolonged spell in the side in his maiden season, which he finished with 25 games under his belt.”
