Aston Villa agree €19m fee with Lyon for Bertrand Traore

Aston Villa have agreed a €19m (£17.6m) fee with Lyon for winger Bertrand Traore, according to RMC Sport.

The 25-year-old will undergo his medical with Villa on Monday ahead of a return to English football.

Lyon signed Traore from Chelsea for €10m three years ago and his former club will receive money from a sell-on clause.

Traore grew frustrated last season by a lack of starts, with many of his 34 appearances coming from the bench.

He will be the eighth player to go in Lyon’s ‘clearance sale’ as head coach Rudi Garcia described it.

A number of clubs showed interest in Traore, who was keen on a move to Spain, but Aston Villa have won the race.

He follows club-record signing Ollie Watkins into Villa Park and Werder Bremen’s Milot Rashica could follow.
