Despite an interest in both players, the league regulations stipulate that only one loan can take place between the same two Premier League clubs.

Given that Loftus-Cheek was left out of Frank Lampard’s squad for their game against Liverpool on Sunday, Villa are said to be prioritising the 24-year-old this summer.  

Villa fans are said to be excited about the prospect of the 10-capped England international joining their side.
