Richard Dunne's proposed move to Aston Villa from Manchester City is yet to be finalised.

The Premier League have told Sky Sports News that the deal cannot be 'ratified' at the moment.

The £6million deal has been all but completed, but Dunne may now have to wait until Wednesday before he officially becomes an Aston Villa player.

There were some reports claiming that Dunne was not happy with his pay-off from City - which was delaying the move, but it now appears that all the documents were signed and sent to the Premier League before the deadline at 5pm on Tuesday.

As such the deal is expected to be confirmed, despite the delay, within the next 24 hours.
