Villa are ready to rebuff any approaches for John McGinn this summer.

Liverpool are thought to be monitoring the Scotland international as they seek a midfield replacement for Gigi Wijnaldum.

But Villa have no interest in selling McGinn, who they value at around £50million.

The 26-year-old is contracted at Villa Park until 2025 after signing a new deal last December and remains a big part of Dean Smith’s future plans.

McGinn has made more than 100 league appearances since joining from Hibernian for a fee of £2.75m three years ago.
