Aston Villa look set to sign France U21 left-back Jordan Amavi from Ligue 1 side Nice.

The 21-year-old, who has scored three goals in 54 appearances for Nice, has reportedly finalised a deal with the Premier League club.

In a statement on their official website, Nice said: "An agreement was reached on Saturday for the transfer of Jordan Amavi to Aston Villa (Premier League).
"Jordan Amavi has not participated in the trip in Belgium on Friday to compete in the second friendly match of Aiglons.

"While his team-mates were on the road to Waregem, the young left-back headed for England and an agreement was made on Saturday afternoon for the transfer."

Nice did not confirm the length of Amavi's contract, nor the fee.
