Aston Villa's latest signing is set to be another centre-back if reports emerging today are to believed.
Ezri Konsa is set to follow in the footsteps of Tyrone Mings and join the Villa to shore up the defence at Villa Park ahead of Aston Villa's return to the Premier League for the 19/20 football season.
Sky Sports suggest that Villa are negotiating a deal for the twenty one year old.
Aston Villa are closing in on the £12million signing of Brentford centre-back Ezri Konsa, Sky Sports News understands.— Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) July 10, 2019
Konsa will cost around twelve million pounds, putting the talented defender firmly in the middle ground of Villa's signings - capped off by the twenty-two million paid for Wesley - Villa's record signing.
The England U21 international is a talented ball player capable of stepping into higher areas and creating attacking opportunities. He's a former player of the year, having won the award during his time at Charlton and has bags of potential.
It's the perfect 'Dean Smith signing' and complements the signing of Kortney Hause perfectly. It might yet be quite the coup.
Official announcement is yet to come, but it looks like Villa are in the final stages of securing another desired signing. The future seems bright.
