Aston Villa are poised to make Brentford striker Ollie Watkins their record signing in an initial £28million deal, which could rise to £33m with add-ons.
The forward trained with the Championship club on Tuesday morning but terms have since been agreed and he was expected to travel to the Midlands for a medical.
Villa boss Dean Smith was in charge of the Bees when they signed Watkins from Exeter in 2017 and made him his top target in attack when Brentford were beaten by Fulham in the play-off final.
