Aston Villa are close to signing Vitesse Arnhem youngster Sil Swinkels and Lamare Bogarde from Feyenoord.

De Gelderlander reported on Saturday that the Premier League side are close to sealing the signing of Swinkels from Vitesse Arnhem. The 16-year-old defender is part of Vitesse’s U16’s at the moment but will now make the move to England.

The Athletic is reporting that Aston Villa are also set to sign Lamare Bogarde from Feyenoord.

The 16-year-old centre-back has been expected to leave Feyenoord for months and it appears that Aston Vila have won the race for his signature ahead of Arsenal, and Tottenham Hotspur.

Lamare is the cousin of former Ajax star Winston Bogarde and the brother of Melayro, who made his debut for Hoffenheim recently.
