Aston Villa Closing In On Ezri Konsa

Tyrone Mings signs permanently with Aston Villa from Bournemouth

Tyrone Mings signs permanently with Aston Villa from Bournemouth

Brentford have completed the signing of Danish midfielder Mathias Jensen from Celta Vigo and are close to selling defender Ezri Konsa to Aston Villa.

'He's a high-potential player who I believe can step up to the Premier League and I'm really looking forward to working with him again'.

The 21-year-old has been a key target for Villa boss Dean Smith, who managed the England Under-21 centre-back when he was in charge of Brentford.

Villa are keen to strengthen in defence after signing Tyrone Mings, 26, from Bournemouth and are still exploring the possibility of re-signing Manchester United's Axel Tuanzebe, 21, on loan.

Tuanzebe would be a great signing for Villa, and his previous season with the club will help him settle down very easily and quickly, and make an impact nearly immediately.

Konsa has expressed his delight at sealing a move to the Premier League.

Konsa told Club TV: "I am over the moon. I can't wait to meet the lads now and get started". For me to be here and play in front of the fans week in, week out, for me is something special.

Konsa, who came through the youth ranks at Charlton, will link up with the Villa squad for the first time when they fly out to America later on Thursday.

"To be honest, I am speechless right now".

The Toffees have been scouring the scene for quality players this summer, as they look to build on an indifferent campaign in the main last term, and aim to push on and break into the top six as soon as possible.
