Ezri Konsa urged to snub Tottenham in favour of Aston Villa stay

Speaking to HITC (h/t Birmingham Live), former Liverpool striker Emile Heskey has urged Aston Villa defender Ezri Konsa to snub Tottenham Hotspur in favour of a stay at Villa Park.

The 23-year-old came through the youth ranks at Charlton Athletic and had a spell at Brentford before joining Villa in the summer of 2019. Since arriving at the club, Konsa has become a mainstay at the back for Dean Smith’s side, playing a key role in their impressive start to the season.

Heskey, however, has urged Konsa to snub a move to Tottenham, a club that he grew up supporting, and continue his progress at Aston Villa instead. (h/t Birmingham Live)

“The only thing I would say is that Villa look like a team on the up. Tottenham have got some wonderful players who are not playing as a team – it’s very, very individual. If you’re looking on paper, they should be in the top four but paper doesn’t mean anything. They’re in a bit of a rut at this time.”

With Toby Alderweireld not getting any younger and the rest of the defence also failing to convince, bringing in a new centre-back in the summer would be a smart move. And Konsa, given how he has adapted to Premier League football and has age on his side, would be a good signing.

It, however, remains to be seen if Spurs do make a move for him in the summer.
