Aston Villa are leading the transfer pursuit for Charlton prodigy Miles Leaburn, who slipped through Chelsea’s fingers
ASTON VILLA are among Premier League clubs considering a summer move for young Charlton striker Miles Leaburn.
The 19-year-old is the son of former Addicks star Carl.
And he is second in the club’s goalscoring chart this season.
And that despite missing more than two months of the season due to injury.
Leaburn has scored 11 goals in 31 games in League One – just 14 of which were in the starting XI.
And that has alarmed Villa and other high-profile teams.
The 6ft 5in forward came through Chelsea’s academy.
He then joined Charlton in 2019 and turned pro last summer.
The Addicks are anticipating offers for him after just one season.
Father Carl played more than 300 games for the club from 1987 to 1998.

Meanwhile, Villa has also been linked with a move for Divock Origi.
The Belgian left Liverpool for AC Milan last summer.
But he has struggled to impress with just two goals this season.
And Origi could now be set for a Premier League return with Unai Emery’s side.
