Villa waiting for Chelsea over Sidwell deal

Aston Villa are waiting on a deal for Chelsea midfielder Steve Sidwell.

The Birmingham Mail says Martin O'Neill was all set to announce the £4.5million transfer of the former Reading player this week and is now left to drag his heels as Chelsea wait to name their new manager.

But Sidwell's arrival is all-but sealed and will be financed by the sale of Scottish international Shaun Maloney who is wanted by Sunderland.
