Aston Villa transfer round-up: Tonev exit confirmed, Ruddy set for switch

Trinity Road Stand - Aston Villa

A selection of stories in the media involving Aston Villa in the last 24 hours.

Villa and Newcastle have cooled their interest in Bordeaux striker Diego Rolan due to his price tag, according to Le 10 Sport.

The Ligue 1 club reportedly value the Uruguayan at £14.5 million – a fee deemed too high by both Premier League sides.

Bury boss David Flitcroft has confirmed that Villa are interested in bringing their young goalkeeper Jack Ruddy to Villa Park, in quotes published by The Sun.

The Scotland youth international is yet to make his senior debut but has already caught the eye of a number of clubs and has impressed on his trial with Tim Sherwood’s team.

Meanwhile, out-of-favour winger Charles N’Zogbia could be set for a move to the Middle East, with Arabian Gulf League side Baniyas Club expressing an interest, as reported by Sport 360.

The 29-year old has failed to find the Wigan form that got him his Villa move back in 2011 and is no longer a part of Sherwood’s plans.

Serie A new boys Frosinone have completed the sign of Aleksandar Tonev, as confirmed on the club's official site.

The winger failed to ever make an impact at Villa Park - appearing just 17 times since his 2013 move - and spent time on loan at Celtic last season.

Finally, the Daily Mail reports that Villa have dropped their interest in Roma forward Adem Ljajic.

The Serbian international was linked with a Premier League switch last week but a deal has proved difficult to bring to fruition.
