He then left Villa's pre-season training camp in Portugal to fly to Sevilla to complete his medical over the weekend.
But Sevilla have now announced that they will not be continuing with the purchase, saying the player did not meet their necessary fitness standards.
Sky Sports News HQ has spoken to sources close to Villa on Monday, who have told us they are bemused by the situation.
They are adamant Amavi is fit, and that Sevilla are trying to save face after they decided to withdraw from the deal.
Amavi joined Villa in a £9m move from French club Nice in the summer of 2015 as part of a ill-fated recruitment drive aimed at keeping Villa in the Premier League.
