At the end of March, both Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday were linked with Quentin Beunardeau.
The Aves goalkeeper is currently in good form, having conceded only one goal in the past five matches. Sheffield Wednesday have sent officials to at least one of the club’s matches this season, and the claims of interest may have come from there.
Watford have also been watching the club, but there’s been no claim yet of Hornets interest in the 25 year old stopper.
The Frenchman only moved to Aves in the last summer window, having played previously for the likes of Le Mans, Nancy and Metz.
Three points clear of the relegation zone in the Portuguese top flight, Aves are one of ten teams still realistically in a battle to avoid the drop.
O Jogo have been speaking to Beunardeau and directly asked him about interest from Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday and potentially leaving Aves, he replied: My agent didn’t tell me anything. I’m focused on making a great championship finish so that the club stays in the league. I have two more years of contract, I’m very happy, but football can change quickly.”
That last bit opens up doubt, and the ‘I’m happy, but who knows’ line is one wheeled out by footballers whenever asked about their future.
