It’s being reported that Villa will wrap up the signing of Karim El Ahmadi early into next week.
The E&S state that the two clubs have yet to reach a formal agreement over the reported £2.8/3m deal but it’s only a matter of time and tiny details now.
Karim missed training at Feyenoord yesterday with reports suggesting he was being given a tour of Bodymoor Heath, but coach Ronald Koeman is quoted as telling press that Karim departure is a ‘sporting loss’ but that it was a financially sensible option for the club to take.
El Ahmadi himself has said:
‘Villa is a top club. I will miss Feyenoord, but nobody will blame me, I want to take this step. I am looking forward to playing against clubs like Chelsea, Man City, Man United and Arsenal.’
Sounds like a done deal to me in all reality now. Bound to be finalised by the time the players report for pre season training. Press Conference for the day before maybe?
