ASTON VILLA are increasingly confident they will secure a deal with Bristol City to sign Adam Webster.

The Championship star was Bristol City’s Player of the Year last season.

And his performances in his debut campaign for the club, following a move from Ipswich 12 months ago, caught Villa’s attention.

Dean Smith’s side have already had a £12m bid knocked back.

And Bristol City have looked to put the play-off final winners off pursuing Webster further by slapping a £30m price-tag on him.
