Mills shares three-word verdict on McGinn quitting Aston Villa in £50m deal

John McGinn is “not going anywhere” if Aston Villa have set a £50million asking price, according to Danny Mills.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Leeds United and England defender delivered his verdict after it was reported Liverpool are admirers of the midfielder.

The Athletic reported on June 23 Villa would only entertain a potential deal for McGinn if the bidding started at between £45-50million.

It is claimed Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of the Scotland international who could be a potential replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum.

McGinn signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa in December just over a year after he last penned a new contract.

The 26-year-old missed just one Premier League game last season through suspension and is a key player for Dean Smith.

He scored three goals and provided six assists in the top-flight as Villa secured an 11th-place finish.

Asked whether he could make the step up to Liverpool, Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “If they’re going to start quoting £50million, he’s not going to going anywhere.

“Also, is he going to get into the Liverpool side? I’m not certain he does.

“£50million is way too much for Liverpool to spend on John McGinn.

“It doesn’t enhance Liverpool in the slightest for £50million.”

McGinn moved to Aston Villa from Scottish Premiership side Hibs for £2.75million in the summer of 2018.

He has scored 13 times and provided 19 assists in 111 appearances across all competitions for the Midlands outfit.
