Sheffield United's promising right-back Matthew Lowton has emerged as a potential target for new Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert, Press Association Sport understands.

Lambert is believed to be considering whether to firm up his interest in the 23-year-old, who has impressed the former Norwich manager.

Lowton, who has two years remaining of his current contract, has made nearly 100 appearances for the Blades since making his first team debut during the 2009-2010 campaign.
