ASTON VILLA boss Graham Taylor has expressed his interest in signing Oldham Athletic defender Fitz Hall.

The 21-year-old centre-half has attracted the interest of a number of clubs with his fine performances for The Latics this season and Taylor is reported to be thinking of making a £500,000 bid for the youngster when the transfer window opens in January.

The Boundary Park club have admitted that scouts have been out to see the former Chesham United player, with Middlesbrough, Blackburn Rovers and Liverpool among his suitors.

However, Oldham had revealed last week that they had not received any 'direct or official approach' from any club for Hall.

The defender's displays have helped the Division Two outfit climb into third in the table.
