Football: Villa confident on Cleverley

posted in: News | 0

Aston Villa are confident of signing Tom Cleverley on loan from Manchester United, according to Sky sources.
Villa are waiting to hear back from the Premier League concerning a last-minute application to take the midfielder to Villa Park for the rest of the season on loan.
It is understood that the two clubs were in talks for much of deadline day as both sought to negotiate a deal. 
Manchester United’s representatives are thought to have been busy with securing Falcao’s loan move to Old Trafford and Danny Welbeck’s exit to Arsenal as well as additional outgoings, meaning that a deal for Cleverley may have missed the 11pm deadline.
However, Villa are confident they have got their man after they submitted their application to the Premier League just before the deadline, outlining they had reached an agreement with United to make Cleverley their seventh acquisition of the window.
Cleverley, who looks to have little future at Old Trafford with boss Louis van Gaal making him available to other clubs, was believed to favour a switch to Everton but the Toffees never struck a deal with United on deadline day.
Paul Lambert’s side expect to hear back from the Premier League later on Tuesday afternoon.
