Villa to sign West Brom's Davies on initial loan
Aston Villa are signing West Brom defender Curtis Davis on an initial loan deal.
The unusual nature of the agreement might suggest O'Neill wants to assess Davies before signing him long-term but that is not the case, with Albion, not Villa, understood to prefer that the transfer is structured in such a way. There is no get-out clause for either club and Davies is certain to become Villa's player next summer. He has agreed personal terms and is expected to be confirmed as their latest recruit today.
