Dwight Yorke believes Aston Villa striker Jhon Duran, who is wanted by Chelsea, could develop into a better striker than Nicolas Jackson.

The club have been all over the headlines over the past few weeks as they start to get their transfer business done, with Omari Kellyman the latest talent to make the move to Stamford Bridge.

However – there is still alot of talk in the media that the board would like to continue spending over the next few months – and young striker Jhon Duran is a player that the board feel could develop into a big player for the club in the coming seasons.

There has been so much speculation and transfer talk about a potential deal – with many claiming that a deal is close – but amid all the rumours – Yorke has opened up and claimed that Duran has the potential to become a better striker than Jackson: ‘With Jhon Duran, Aston Villa need to make a football decision,’ Yorke said.

‘If it works for both parties that Duran goes to Chelsea, then it’s probably the best solution. It depends on if it works for Unai Emery and how he can replace Duran.

‘I did like Duran, I don’t think he had enough opportunities so I’m not able to determine whether he’d be a success or failure for Aston Villa.

‘Whether he’ll be a success at CHELSEA is another story, I can’t see him getting many more minutes there then he does at Aston Villa, since Chelsea already have Nicolas Jackson. I do, however, think he has the potential to become a better striker than Jackson.’
