Aston Villa are set to sign Jan Bednarek ahead of West Ham United from Southampton on the final day of the summer transfer window, according to The Athletic. The report has claimed that West Ham were close to reaching an agreement, but it is Villa who have won the race for the signature of the defender.
Bednarek himself has decided to move to Villa despite interest from West Ham. Southampton are happy with the deal, which is expected to be made official soon. The defender has been on the books of the Saints since 2017 and has done well over the years in the Premier League.
Villa have made a poor start to the Premier League season, and there is a danger that Steven Gerrard’s side could end up fighting for their status in the English top flight.
