Andreas Weimann: Aston Villa striker linked with Inter Milan

The young Austrian has been one of the few positives for Villa in a difficult season which sees them battling against relegation in the Premier League.

Weimann has bagged 11 goals so far this term, leading to rumours in some quarters that a move to Serie A could be on the cards.

Robert Groener, who represents the 21-year-old, insisted that he had not heard from the Italian giants, but refused to categorically rule out a switch, particularly with his client's contract due to expire at the end of next season.

Groener told Interlive.it: "At the moment there is nothing concrete. I have not had any contact with Marco Branca or any other Inter directors.

"His contract with Villa expires in 2014, so if they do not renew then he could be sold over the summer.

"Playing in Serie A? Obviously Serie A is less prestigious than the Premier League, but it would be an honour for Weimann to wear the jersey of an historic and prestigious club like Inter.

"But, for now, there is nothing concrete."
