Aston Villa are readying a close-season bid for young Palace winger Sean Scannell.

The News of the World says Martin O'Neill's side are prepared to spend up to £3 million to get the 17-year-old.

Scannell has been in great form since breaking into the Palace first team this season and is sure to be in high demand when the transfer window reopens in the summer.
