With it being known that striker Rudy Gestede is in Middlesbrough at the moment for talks over a move this January transfer window, it appears we’ve made our money back.
Sky Sports are reporting this afternoon that a fee of £6million has been agreed for the 28 year old Benin international and of course £6million is said to have been the fee we paid Blackburn Rovers for his services in the summer of 2015.
With manager Steve Bruce confirming that talks had been held between both clubs and that the player had travelled for talks, Sky say he’ll undergo a medical later today and that the finishing touches on his new personal terms will be done shortly – so potentially an announcement tomorrow or Thursday maybe.
The £6million fee was apparently agreed over the weekend as hinted at and should he depart this week, he will go having made 19 appearances for Villa in 2016/17 with a return of four goals.
In total he would depart with 26 starting appearances and a further 29 from the substitutes bench, returning ten goals in total.
