Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is confident keeping Andi Weimann.
Weimann still has to agree terms, and his agent has hinted that other clubs are ready to make offers, but Villa are confident a deal will be done.
Lambert said: “Andi has been exceptional. He is a natural finisher who knows where the goal is, but his work-rate is second to none.
“That was the thing that struck me when I came here and first started working with him. He has a natural hunger and desire to get better and that can take you a long way.
“Success doesn’t go to his head; money wouldn’t go to his head.
“Whatever happens you are always going to get the same player with the same drive and ambition.”
