Former Ayr United loan star Viljami Sinisalo is being eyed up for a move away from parent club Aston Villa (Sunday Mail).

The highly-rated goalkeeper is heading into the final year of his Aston Villa contract and Bundesliga clubs are keen on his services. Bayern München and RB Leipzig are both said to be interested in a move for the ex-Ayr United goalkeeper.

Aston Villa hope to tie up a contract extension for Sinisalo, who regard the Finland youth international as ‘one of the best of his age, anywhere in Europe,’ according to former Ayr boss Mark Kerr. Sinisalo impressed last season in the Scottish Championship and Celtic are said to be after him.

He was number one under both Kerr and then David Hopkin before returning to Aston Villa with a thigh strain in April. Ayr have a new goalkeeper ahead of the 2021/22 cinch Championship season, former Morton goalkeeper Aidan McAdams.
