Real Mallorca defender Ivan Ramis admits he hopes to move to the Premier League.

Aston Villa and Sunderland are in a £9million fight for Real Mallorca centre-back Ramis, says The Sun.

Ramis, 27, is now keen to continue his career in England after snubbing a switch to Everton two years ago.

And Villa and the Black Cats would not have to break the bank. Ramis, who has three years left on his contract, earns a modest £11,000-a-week in wages with the La Liga outfit.

He admitted: "This could be the ideal moment to make a change, and the Premier League appeals. I want more challenges, more dreams."
