Aston Villa hope to close a £10 million double defensive signing today.
The Times says Villa's summer spending will be brought to an end once Martin O'Neill completes the double signing of James Collins, the West Ham defender, and Richard Dunne from Manchester City. The combined fee from both deals is expected to reach £10m.
Collins is currently undergoing a medical at Villa's Bodymoor Heath training ground, with Dunne expected to follow shortly. O'Neill has been told there will be no more money available after those deals have been completed.
