Lyon striker Bertrand Traore passes Aston Villa medical

Olympique Lyon striker Bertrand Traore is a step away from signing for Aston Villa.

Villa have had an offer for Traore accepted by OL, with the forward passing a medical yesterday.

Sky Sports says Traore will join Villa for an initial fee of £17m with another €2m due to OL in bonuses.

For the 2019/20 season, Traore played 35 matches for Lyon, scoring 4 goals and producing 5 assists.

A move to Villa will mean a return to England for the former Chelsea youth teamer.
