Aston Villa have joined Liverpool in the race to sign Newcastle United’s promising young winger, Yankuba Minteh, following his impressive loan spell at Feyenoord.

Managed by former Feyenoord boss Arne Slot, Liverpool have expressed strong interest in the 19-year-old, alongside significant interest from clubs in Italy and Germany.

But Ontheminute.com now understand that Aston Villa are joining the race to sign the young winger in the 2024 summer transfer window.
