Aston Villa are on the verge of signing midfielder Karim El Ahmadi from Feyenoord, Voetbal International understands.
The Villans are looking to reinforce the squad following yet another disappointing season and they have set their sights on the Moroccan midfielder.
Voetbal International claims the two clubs have already agreed on the transfer fee, which is close to €2.8 million, and the player is expected to reach an agreement over the personal terms in the coming days.
The 27-year-old, who started his career at Twente, returned to Feyenoord last summer after spending six months on loan at Al Ahli.
El Ahmadi had a big role to play in one of club’s most successful seasons over the last decade.
Feyenoord qualified for the Champions League by achieving second-place finish in Eredivisie, with the Moroccan scoring 2 goals and producing 6 assists in 31 games.
