Morgan Rogers on the Brink of Villa Park Move

Aston Villa are on the verge of welcoming Middlesbrough winger Morgan Rogers to their ranks, with a £16 million deal reportedly in place. The 21-year-old talent is expected to undergo a medical imminently, as the Midlands club looks to bolster their attacking options.

Personal Terms Agreed for Top January Target

Rogers, who has been the focal point of Villa’s transfer ambitions this month, has already agreed on personal terms. The pursuit intensified following manager Unai Emery’s direct involvement, determined to secure the services of the young winger after Villa faced him in the FA Cup.

Emery’s Influence Pivotal in Transfer Move

Emery, known for his keen eye on talent, set his sights on Rogers after the FA Cup encounter earlier in January. His insistence has paid off, with Villa’s recruitment team working diligently to finalize the deal for the player who has impressed with seven goals and nine assists this season.

Scouting and Deal Progression

Villa scouts were spotted observing Rogers in action during a recent match against Rotherham, further indicating the club’s serious interest. The winger, who only just signed with Middlesbrough last summer after leaving Manchester City, has quickly made a significant impact, attracting attention from the Premier League outfit.

Financial Details and Previous Transfers

The proposed transfer fee includes add-ons, and Manchester City is set to receive a cut of the deal. Aston Villa has not been idle this window, having already signed Kosta Nedeljkovic from Red Star Belgrade, who will remain on loan with the Serbian club for the rest of the season.

Villa’s Premier League Aspirations

With Aston Villa currently in a strong position in the Premier League, the addition of Rogers could provide a further boost as they prepare for their upcoming match against Newcastle. The club is also reportedly planning to offload two more first-team players as part of their squad restructuring.
