A selection of stories in the media involving Aston Villa in the last 24 hours.
News of their offer comes just days after the former Barcelona youngster was transfer listed, with the Italian club believed to be holding out for a fee of around £10.7 million before sanctioning the sale.
Villa have fought off competition from the likes of Liverpool and Stoke to secure the in-demand winger and an announcement of the £12 million deal is expected imminently.
The central defender has impressed for the Forest youth team and has already represented Scotland’s Under-21 team despite being just 17-years old.
The report claims that the attacking midfielder doesn’t view the Baggies as a good fit but also mentions that there have been no concrete offers from Villa in recent weeks.
The report lists Sunderland, Newcastle and West Ham as the interested parties but suggests Spurs would prefer to avoid doing business with the Hammers.
