Aston Villa jumped to the front of the queue in the race for Joe Aribo’s signature.

The Charlton Athletic midfielder has a number of clubs chasing him this summer, including SPFL giants Celtic and Rangers, but the Sun claims that Villa are in pole position for Aribo.

The 22-year-old playmaker has caught the attention of Premier League clubs with 10 goals in 38 League One outings for the Addicks this season.

Villa head coach Dean Smith is among Aribo’s admirers and could tempt to lure him to Villa Park this summer.
