From Bayer Leverkusen, Aston Villa grab Diaby

Aston Villa secures a €60 million deal with Bayer Leverkusen for Moussa Diaby who turned down an offer from Saudi Arabia to join the Premier League.

Aston Villa successfully reached an agreement with Bayer Leverkusen to acquire Diaby for a substantial fee of €60 million. The French winger decided to decline an offer from Saudi Arabia to pursue a move to the highly competitive Premier League, according to reports.

Aston Villa will sign the 24-year-old on a five-year deal. The former PSG starlet is set to compete in the Europa Conference League in the play-offs next season. His medical visit and then his signature must take place within the next 48 hours.

The French winger has reportedly rejected an offer from a Saudi club as he prefers a move to Premier League and compete in European competitions. The Paris-born forward scored nine goals last season in the Bundesliga.

The Villains are set to face Newcastle United, Fulham and Brentford as a part of the Premier League summer series in the next 10 days.
