Villa sent scouts to watch the 24-year-old Bosnian in action on Sunday when Hajduk were beaten at home by Inter Zapresic.

Susic is a creative midfielder who has been on the radar of Engish clubs in the past with Stoke and Leicester linked last year, while West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is also understood to be a fan.

Villa’s sudden interest is being reported as another clue that Pearson, who has been out of work since being sacked by Leicester last summer, will be the next permanent manager at Villa Park.
