Mbwana Samatta is heading for the Aston Villa exit door despite only joining the club in January as Dean Smith seeks to overhaul his squad before the transfer window closes.

The forward joined Villa from a Genk for an initial £8.5million, rising to a possible £10m, as a replacement for the injured Wesley, but is now thought to be surplus to requirements following the arrival of club-record signing Ollie Watkins for a possible £33m.

With Smith also chasing another striker, Sportsmail understands Samatta is one of a number of players who can leave before the transfer window closes on October 4.
