Aston Villa: Villans closing in on permanent Robin Olsen deal

Aston Villa: Villans closing in on permanent Robin Olsen deal -Aston Villa News

Aston Villa are reportedly close to completing the permanent signing of loanee goalkeeper Robin Olsen.

The Lowdown: Olsen’s Villa debut

The 32-year-old made the move to the Midlands on loan in January from AS Roma and had to be extremely patient for a chance under Steven Gerrard.

The Sweden international eventually made his debut on the final day against Manchester City, with Villa losing 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium. Olsen, who was labelled ‘monstrous’ by the Spanish press following a fine performance for his country, was assaulted following the final whistle after some City fans invaded the pitch, and there has now been an update on his long-term future.

The Latest: Permanent move for Olsen?

Sport Witness relayed a transfer update from Forza Roma after Villa signed Boubacar Kamara on a free transfer.

They claimed that Douglas Luiz could now leave Villa for Roma, adding that Olsen is ‘close to staying at Aston Villa’ for a deal worth around €3.5m (£2.97m).

The Verdict: Villa not hanging around

Philippe Coutinho’s loan has already been made permanent, Kamara has been announced and now it looks as if Olsen is set to commit his future at Villa Park as well.

Gerrard and NSWE clearly aren’t wasting any time when it comes to their transfer activity, and a full-time swoop for Olsen appears to be a shrewd one.

He may have only made one appearance for the club so far, but he has plenty of experience all across Europe and for Sweden, so the 32-year-old should be a perfect number two to Emiliano Martinez going forward.
