Aston Villa finalising deal for Racing Genk striker Ally Samatta

Aston Villa are on the brink of signing RacingGenk striker Ally Samatta.

The exciting attacking talent is set to join Villa in a €10m deal and will become the first Tanzanian to play in the Premier League.

HLN says some minor details still need to be settled, but Villa will push to close the agreement this weekend.

Samatta has turned down massive offers from the Middle East this month to fulfil his dream to play in England.

He played a huge role in the fourth title success of RacingGenk last year, scoring 20 goals.
