Jordan Amavi: Sevilla agree deal for Aston Villa left-back

The Spanish club had been favourites to land the 23-year-old left-back despite having an initial £5.3million offer rejected last month.

It has been reported that after days of negotiations, Amavi is set to complete a move to Sevilla and just a medical at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium stands in the way of his Villa exit.

Signed by Tim Sherwood two years ago for a fee of £10million from Nice, the France under-21 global has endured a testing two years in English football.

Amavi, a former France Under-21 global, joined Aston Villa in 2015 but a knee injury curtailed his first season at Villa Park after only a couple of months.

Sevilla confirmed this, their website stating that, "Sevilla FC and Aston Villa FC have reached an agreement for French player Jordan Kevin Amavi, subject to medical tests".

Last season Amavi started 26 league matches in the Championship as Villa fell short in their bid to make an immediate return to the top flight.
