Aston Villa are set to miss out on transfer target Heerenveen striker Bas Dost.

Villa appear unlikely to secure Dost's signature given the comments of his Italian agent Carmine Coviello.

Coviello told sportmediaset.it: "He refused a proposal from Aston Villa because he wants to go to a top club.

"We're offering him to clubs which can spend €10-13 million, because this is Heerenveen's request.

"They are (asking for) a lot of money, but Dost is a monster in scoring.

"He has a nose for goal and technique. He can remind me of (Oliver) Bierhoff."
