Championship side Aston Villa closing in on Ghana's Jeffery Schlupp

Championship side Aston Villa is the latest to join in the race for the signature of Ghana midfielder Jeffery Schlupp. Schlupp has been the subject of many transfer rumours with clubs such as West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace all interested in the services of the Ghanaian.   Crystal Palace have already had a bid of 9million pounds rejected by Leicester. The 24 year old has struggled to break through the Leicester team this season with manager Claudio Ranieri leaving him out of the 18 man squad for the FA Cup win at Everton over the weekend.   Schlupp is not happy with his current situation and he is looking at leaving the club with Aston Villa now showing interest in him. Villa are seeking for a quick return to the premiership after being relegated last season.
