According to The Sun, Aston Villa and Leeds United are interested in Cardiff City winger Kadeem Harris, with the 25-year-old out of contract next summer, but it seems unlikely he’ll end up at Villa Park at the end of the season.
Harris has impressed in recent weeks for the Bluebirds after coming back from exile and was given a glowing endorsement by manager Neil Warnock after his surprise return to the first-team. Nevertheless, there are a lot of questions to be asked about this story before it can ever be given any credence.
Given the Cardiff man has made just four Premier League appearances this season, the first of which only came in October, it’s hard to believe Villa have been scouting this player. Harris only made three appearances last season for Cardiff as he was struggling with injury, so why would he be on the Villans’ radar?
If Harris was to leave Cardiff at the end of his contract, wouldn’t it make more sense that he’d try his hand at a Premier League club before looking at a Championship side. Leeds and Villa may well earn promotion to the top-flight come May, but it’s not guaranteed.
Pay little attention to this story, as it’s hard to believe Dean Smith is targeting somebody who has only played in seven league appearances in the last two seasons and has struggled with injury throughout.
