Aston Villa have agreed a deal to sign England goalkeeper Tom Heaton from Burnley.
The 33-year-old England international, who had entered the last year of his contract at Turf Moor, is set to become Villa's 12th signing of the summer.
Heaton is expected to travel to the Midlands on Wednesday to undergo a medical ahead of the move, which is expected to be worth between £8m and £9m.
Heaton started Burnley's last two pre-season friendlies, including Tuesday night's 6-1 win over Ligue 1 side Nice.
The former Manchester United youth player joined Burnley from Bristol City in 2013, and has since made 200 appearances under Sean Dyche.
Heaton was part of Gareth Southgate's most recent England squad, but the last of his three senior international appearances came in a friendly against France in June 2017.
With Heaton on the verge of joining Villa, Burnley have entered talks with Leeds for Northern Ireland international Bailey Peacock-Farrell.
Leeds value him at £3.5m and will look for a replacement should they agree to sell the goalkeeper.
