Many Aston Villa fans are buzzing as the transfer saga around Morgan Sanson seems to be coming to an end following the latest reports, which suggest a deal has finally been agreed.
The first bid Villa made was immediately rejected as it was only €7m with €2m in bonuses and Marseille wanted closer to €18m.
It looks like both sides have now compromised though, as @villareport have relayed news emerging from Sky Sports that Villa have agreed a £14m fee, potentially rising to £15.5m (€15.7m rising to €17.3m). He is expected to arrive in Birmingham next week.
The 26 year-old has an abundance of experience for both club and country – this includes appearances in the Champions League. He can provide a threat going forward and be a big help defensively according to his statistics this season, as he has averaged 1.9 tackles and 1.1 key passes a game in Ligue 1 this campaign (WhoScored).
With these type of stats it is easy to see why fans are excited by the box to box midfielder – one supporter simply said: ‘Awesome signing.’
With their club currently eleventh in the Premier League with at least two, and in some cases three games in hand on teams above them (SofaScore), players who are currently playing at such a high level like Sanson could add the much-needed depth and quality to help the club finish the season in the European qualification places.
Here is how Villa fans reacted to the news:
“THEY’VE DONE IT AGAIN”
