​Aston Villa poised to sign Tanzania forward Samatta

Aston Villa are hoping to complete a £10m deal for Genk striker Mbwana Samatta.

Samatta, who scored against Liverpool in this season's Champion League group stage, has emerged as a Villa target.

But the fine details of the transfer are yet to be agreed.

The 27-year-old Tanzania international requires a work permit so he will not be available in time for Villa's visit to Brighton on Saturday.
