Aston Villa are on the brink of closing a deal for Tottenham winger Wayne Routledge.

Routledge is reportedly undergoing a medical at Aston Villa ahead of a proposed move to Villa Park.

Routledge revealed earlier this month he was desperate to leave White Hart Lane after failing to establish himself in North London.

The former Crystal Palace ace has started only three games since his arrival at Tottenham three years ago and is keen to leave to kick-start his career.

Villa boss Martin O'Neill is ready to offer Routledge an escape route by taking him to Villa Park, according to Sky Sports.

If Routledge passes his medical and agrees personal terms he will become Villa's first signing of this month's transfer window.
