Aston Villa favourites to sign Charlton whizkid Joe Aribo

Aston Villa are favourites to sign Charlton whizkid Joe Aribo.

The Sun says the midfielder, 22, has had an outstanding season at the Valley but is out of contract in the summer.

The Old Firm have been linked with a move - as have even Prem champions Manchester City.

But it is Villa who are currently winning the race for the Camberwell lad's services.

Dean Smith's side have their own play-off final to play on Monday when they take on Derby at Wembley.

But even if they win and are playing Premier League football next year, Villa are still very keen on adding former Staines Town ace Aribo to their ranks.
