Villa close to deal for Chelsea's Sidwell

The Midlands club are understood to be on the verge of agreeing a £4.5m deal for the former Reading player which could go through as early as next week.

Sidwell has been one of Villa manager Martin O'Neill's main transfer targets since the season ended.

And his expected arrival will offset some of the disappointment surrounding the club regarding the expected departure of Gareth Barry to Liverpool.
