Aston Villa and Portsmouth are being linked with a move for Lincoln City’s Bruno Andrade.

The Imps could face a battle to hold onto the Portuguese winger this summer, as per a report by Lincolnshire Live.

Andrade, who is 25 years-old, joined Lincoln last summer on a free transfer from National League side Boreham Wood and has played a key part in Danny Cowley’s sides’ promotion from League Two in his first season at the club.

He has played 50 games in all competitions, scoring 11 goals and gaining eight assists. He has a year left on his contract at Sincil Bank.

Aston Villa have been credited with an interest in him. Dean Smith’s side booked their place in the Championship Play-Off final last night with a penalty shoot-out win over West Brom.

Portsmouth are also being linked. Kenny Jackett’s side are eyeing a promotion to the Championship this month in the Play-Offs and could see Andrade as an ideal summer acquisition.

Andrade started his career at QPR and rose through the youth ranks at Loftus Road. He went onto play four times for the London side and also had loan spells at Aldershot Town, Wycombe Wanderers and Stevenage.

He left the Hoops on a permanent basis in 2015 to join Woking, where he spent a year before switching to Boreham Wood. Andrade was prolific for the Wood and bagged a combined 38 goals in his two seasons there which earned him a move back to the Football League with Lincoln.
