Sky: Aston Villa in advanced talks for Milot Rashica

Aston Villa are in advanced talks to sign Werder Bremen winger Milot Rashica, according to Sky Sport.

Rashica, 24, has been expected to leave Werder this summer but a move has been slow to materialise.

RB Leipzig, his first choice, could not meet Werder’s asking price for the Kosovo international.

Villa then came forward for Rashica, but there were doubts over whether he wanted the move.

With the transfer deadline fast approaching, it looks like Dean Smith’s side will finally get their man.

Sky Sport transfer expert Max Bielefeld says it is ‘very likely’ that Rashica will join Villa by tomorrow night.

The two clubs are negotiating the final details before the transfer can be made official.

Earlier today, both Wolfsburg and Bayer Leverkusen were linked with a late move for Rashica.

Werder now face losing Davy Klaassen, who is returning to Ajax, and Rashica on deadline day.

21:53 UPDATE:

Villa manager Dean Smith has denied the Rashica reports, saying he is happy with his squad.
