Villa have already been busy in the transfer market this summer, with Sherwood overseeing the arrival of 10 players.

And it could well be 11 before the close of the transfer window in six days time, with negotiations having started with Roma for the signing of attacking midfielder Adem Ljajic.

The Serbian international fired eight goals for the Serie A giants last season, but is set to move to the Premier League with Roma director of football Walter Sabatini understood to be in England for negotiations.

Manchester United came close to signing Ljajic in 2009, only for Fiorentina to win the race for his signature.

He signed for Roma in the summer of 2013, and managed 32 appearances last season – 23 of which were starts.
