NEWCASTLE UNITED are reportedly poised to raid Aston Villa with a £30million bid to land John McGinn. The Daily Star claim Steve Bruce is prepared to splash the cash to be reunited with the midfielder, who he signed for his former club for a measly £2.5m back in 2018. Villa were in the Championship when the Scotland star arrived from Hibs and he was pivotal in their grandstand finish to the season that saw them win promotion through the play-offs. Bruce had paid the price for a poor start to the campaign but after returning to the Premier League with Newcastle, is desperate to land the 25-year-old once again. McGinn had been enjoying a fine start to his maiden season in the top-flight before he was sidelined with a broken ankle in December. Another of Bruce’s ex sides, Manchester United, also registered an interest in the Scotland International after he caught the eye of Sir Alex Ferguson.Dean Smith’s Villa will reportedly fend off any enquiries into McGinn if they can retain their Prem status, but relegation could see them forced to sell.
