Tim Sherwood says he wanted to sign the England international at Villa in 2015, but Tottenham blocked the move

Tim Sherwood told The Analysis Show that he tried to sign Burnley winger Aaron Lennon at Aston Villa in 2015, from Tottenham Hotspur. However, he joined Everton on loan – before signing on a permanent deal.

Lennon, 34, continued to prove that age is just a number on Saturday, scoring Burnley’s third in a 3-0 win over Brighton. The England international has made 21 shots into the top corner of the Seagulls goal.

Back in 2015, Lennon was struggling during his spell at Tottenham and joined Everton on loan from Spurs – before signing on a permanent deal that summer. But Sherwood says he tried to bring Lennon to Aston Villa.

The former Spurs man was in charge of Villa from February to October 2015, and has now told Analysis Show that he tried to sign him that summer. But Lennon joined Everton on a permanent basis.

“Aaron Lennon, he’s older than me, Aaron. He’s still playing, but it doesn’t matter if you keep the ball in that high corner. I tried to bring him to Villa, they wouldn’t let me do it,” Sherwood said.

“You know why he plays for Sean Dyche, because he is very diligent. He does the job the manager wants, he puts the job back and he still presents a threat going forward – that’s why he plays so many games. “

Lennon played great for Burnley late in the game. The former England winger is showing signs of a younger Lennon, shining in a Tottenham shirt, having 108 goals in 365 appearances for the London team.

Villa can do that, after just one point in their last three games against Leeds, Newcastle and Watford. After playing for Everton, Lennon joined Burnley, went to Turkey and is now back at Turf Moor.

Despite making 593 appearances for the club, 21 caps for the national team and 29 more at youth level, Lennon is going to move on and, at 34, could have a few more years to go.
