With Aston Villa focusing in on our upcoming Championship Play-Off Semi-Final doubleheader with local rivals West Bromwich Albion with the prize being another trip to Wembley with Premier League football in the offing, that hasn’t stopped the rumour mill from grinding into gear and this week there’s a new name on the list – Stephane Bahoken.

Whether I’ve been asleep and simply missed this one I don’t know but reports in France have suggested that we are keeping tabs on the 26-year-old striker along with Sheffield United with them already confirming their top flight return via the automatic spots.

With eleven Ligue 1 goals to his name in 2018/19 for Angers, the best I can tell is this is most likely agent games trying to drum up interest as it allows reports to nicely segway into, Jonathan Kodjia played for Angers before making the move to England.

In any event, the club are believed to want £8.5million according to RMC Sport’s coverage of the speculation, but I don’t see us having any interest in the Cameroon international at that price given the goal return I’m looking at.
