Aston Villa’s CEO Keith Wyness has branded reports that Manchester United have made a £5million offer for young striker Keinan Davis as ‘complete fiction’ and ‘utter rubbish’.
The Sun claimed Jose Mourinho’s side were impressed with the 19-year-old forward, who has broken into the first XI at Villa Park this season.
It was reported that United are joining Arsenal and Everton in the chase for the former Biggleswade Town striker – who has scored two goals in 10 Championship appearances under Steve Bruce in 2017/18 – having been impressed with his battling displays up top.
The article also claims that United failed in a £5m bid for the youngster, implying that the club had turned down any such offer.
But Villa chief Keith Wyness has slammed the report, insisting it is nonsense.
Utter rubbish,reporter should apologise

Replying to a Villa fan account that had tweeted about the story, he posted: ‘Utter rubbish, reporter should apologise.’
When asked by a fan to clarify whether the offer being made was ‘rubbish’ or whether it was only false that it had been rejected, he replied: ‘Both complete fiction.’
