Villa agree fee with Hammers target

idrissa gueye-lilleAston Villa are believed to be close to finalising a £9million move for Lille’s Idrissa Gueye who has often been linked with West Ham as a possible summer target.

Reports claim Villa have agreed a fee with the French Ligue 1 side for the 25-year-old Senegalese midfielder. He is believed to be flying to the UK tomorrow for talks and a medical in the midlands.

Gueye has been linked with West Ham, Crystal Palace,Southampton and Marseille in the summer but appears Villa have come in late to conclude a deal.

Reports in France last week suggested Marseille were closing in on the signing of the Senegal international, but more money was on offer from Villa and that has turned the player’s head it has been claimed.

  1. So many have been linked with us that I can’t remember his name mentioned. Plenty more fish in the sea… lol

  2. Seems Sean & Hugh were both busy on the same story.Either that or i have double vision,lol

  3. I don’t think this bloke was genuinely on our radar and if he chose Villa it can only be for money so I’m glad

  4. Never ever thought we needed this play with the personal we have and the others we are chasing

  5. Are we just being linked with every Senegalese player?
