Aston Villa are said to be among a group of three clubs keen to sign Derby defender Jayden Bogle during the summer transfer window.

The 19-year-old impressed for the Rams in the Championship last season, making 50 appearances in all competitions and scoring two goals.

He was part of the Derby side that reached the play-off final but came up short, as Villa claimed the final top-flight spot on offer.

It seems as though he caught the eye of Villa chiefs, with Crystal Palace and Newcastle United also thought to be monitoring the situation.

New Derby chief Phillip Cocu wants to keep hold of the 19-year-old, who has earned one cap for the England Under-20s, but the youngster is sure to have his head turned by the thought of playing in the Premier League.

Having already signed 12 players this summer, it seems as though Dean Smith might not be done just yet, with the window due to shut on Thursday this week.

Bogle spent two seasons in the Rams youth teams after beginning his football life at Reading and Swindon before making his senior Derby debut in August last year.

It remains to be seen if any of the trio firm up their interest with a bid but Cocu will be keeping his fingers crossed that the talented right-back stays for another promotion push.
