TEAMtalk can reveal Aston Villa are close to finalising a loan deal for Robert Snodgrass.
It is understood the Scottish international has agreed terms on the move to Villa Park after being told by West Ham, he could find a new club this month.
A number of other clubs have been linked with the winger, including Brighton, Burnley and his former club Hull City.
But Steve Bruce looks to have persuaded his owners to make the move for Snodgrass, and finance what would represent a sizeable outlay for the Championship side.
The 29-year-old only joined West Ham in January when they paid just over £10million for his signature.
