A selection of stories in the media involving Aston Villa in the last 24 hours...
The Belgian club have reportedly lowered their asking price to £7 million, prompting Villa to re-enter the chase - with West Bromwich Albion also keen.
The report claims Serie A side Genoa are looking to secure a deal for the 23-year old, who will cost around £2.5 million, but face competition from the Villans for his signature.
The pacey winger had been linked with Liverpool and Stoke City but it appears as though Villa have won the race - the report even claiming that a three-year deal has been agreed.
Sherwood has stated his desire to bring in English players, but given United’s lack of options up top, it seems unlikely they will sanction a move for the striker.
Finally, Villa-linked Felipe Avenatti has stated that he would be open to a move abroad, should the right scenario present itself.
"And if there was a chance to improve going to play abroad, or in a higher category then I would take the chance, otherwise (I will) stay here without problems," he said, in quotes published by Tuttomercatoweb.
