With transfer speculation coming thick and fast for Aston Villa, Stade de Reims’ Edouard Mendy is a new name for me this week.

The 27-year-old goalkeeper seems to have been offered up by French outlet L’Equipe presumably as an additional option to the speculation that has already linked us with potential moves for Neil Etheridge and Jack Butland, but the report lacks any real details.

Suffice to say, they simply suggest that after three years with the Ligue 1 side the player might fancy a new challenge and England becomes an easy link to make. The two capped Senegal international is said to have attracted interest from Marseille, Rennes and Montpellier and as well as the tentative link to Villa, fellow promoted side Norwich City are also referenced.

I’m not really sure anything will come of this one as with Jed Steer No 1, we’ll already be looking to move one of Orjan Nyland and Lovre Kalinic on and would another foreign goalkeeper gamble pay off after our recent attempts?

I’m not the only one who doesn’t think so.
