Aston Villa agree Eck fee with Birmingham

Aston Villa have agreed a compo fee with Birmingham City for manager Alex McLeish.

Villa have reportedly agreed to pay rivals Birmingham £2million for McLeish, who should be confirmed as Villa manager on Friday.

Villa have been involved in constructive talks with the Scot over the past two days.

On Thursday night, Sky Sports sources suggested the Second City rivals had agreed a compensation figure which was considerably lower than the £5.4million figure which Blues were believed to be seeking. McLeish had two years remaining on his contract.
