Fulham midfielder Kieran Richardson is set for a medical with Aston Villa.

The Daily Mail says Richardson is expected to have a medical at Aston Villa on Friday ahead of his proposed transfer for an undisclosed fee.

The 29-year-old had been the subject of interest from West Ham, West Brom and Crystal Palace, but Villa now seem poised to sign him.

Richardson had seemed keen to stay in London following Fulham's relegation, but the arrival of Roy Keane at Villa Park as Paul Lambert's number two is believed to have swayed his decision.
