Aston Villa are considering a bid for Heerenveen's 22-year-old Dutch striker Bas Dost.

The youngster is currently leading the scoring charts in Holland with 23 goals and was pleased to hear of the interest from the Midlands club.

'It is positive news,' the Under-21 international told Voetbal Primeur.

'You
hear this and of course it is nice to know they are interested. Aston
Villa is a club I don’t know very well, but they look good.

'I have spoken with my agent and we won’t be discussing anything during the season.'

Villa will have competition for his signature however, with other clubs linked with a move for the attacker, including Valencia.

If
they do manage to lure him to Villa Park, he will meet another recruit
from the Eredivisie – AZ Alkmaar's Brett Holman, who has been signed on a
Bosman.
