Nantes midfielder Jordan Veretout will have a medical at Aston Villa on Friday ahead of a proposed move, Sky sources say.

The France U21 international is the latest player lined up by Villa, who are also due to give medicals to strikers Emmanuel Adebayor and Rudy Gestede.

A third forward, Jordan Ayew, has already arrived this week along with full-back Jose Angel Crespo.

The new man in Tim Sherwood's sights is a 22-year-old who has been a regular in the Nantes side for the past four seasons.

The French club's president this week told newspaper L'Equipe he had sanctioned Veretout's move to Villa despite a better offer from Leicester.
