PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! 1892822245">Man United are in talks to sign Tom Heaton on a free transfer from Aston Villa after offering him a player-coach role, Football Insider has learned. The goalkeeper, 35, has been targeted by United to become their third goalkeeper next season as back-up to Dean Henderson and David de Gea. A United source has told Football Insider the club are working to lure Heaton with the offer of a dual role in which he would provide first-team keeping cover as well as help coach their roster of keepers. The Premier League giants want a replacement for Sergio Romero, who has been frozen out this season and is set to leave when his contract expires next month. Lee Grant, 38, has been third choice for most of this season but he has not yet been offered a new contract.

Villa number one Emiliano Martinez is the top target to replace De Gea, but his mammoth wages make it very difficult for him to secure a summer transfer.
Signing Heaton is a far less complicated deal for United.
He joined Villa from Burnley for £8million in the summer of 2019 and made 20 appearances before suffering a knee injury midway through his first season.
