Everton and Aston Villa will battle it out to sign Valencia defender Miguel.

Everton and Aston Villa will battle it out to sign Valencia defender Miguel.

Moyes and Villa chief Martin O’Neill are eager to take advantage of Valencia’s financial troubles and will bid around £6million for the full-back, 29, says the Daily Star.

With David Villa and David Silva set to leave the Mestalla, Miguel’s availability has largely gone unnoticed but Valencia are ready to listen to offers for him.

Toffees’ defender Phil Jagielka is out until November and Villa ace Martin Laursen has retired from football following a string of injury problems.

Both teams want to cover the loss of their key players and are expected to move for Miguel this week.
