Aston Villa have agreed a £30million deal for Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey. A statement on the club’s website said that “Aston Villa and Bayer Leverkusen have reached an agreement for the transfer of Leon Bailey subject to the player completing a medical and finalising personal terms.”
Bailey was a part of the Reggae Boyz squad, which was eliminated from the ongoing Concacaf Gold Cup at the quarter-final stage by the USA at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Sunday, July 25. He was on the bench for the quarter-final game.
Talks advanced quickly for Bailey who had previously been valued at £60m amid interest from top premier league clubs. He is due to become an Aston Villa player pending a medical on Sunday.
