Fabrizio Romano has given his ‘here we go’ seal of approval to Clement Lenglet’s proposed move to Aston Villa.
The outlet explained that the Catalan giants were looking to loan out the centre-back as they were desperate to get his salary off their wage bill and it was subsequently revealed by Jijantes FC a couple of days ago that a move to Villa could open up as a possibility for the centre-back.
Lenglet returning to PL but not to Tottenham
If Romano’s latest update is to be believed, Lenglet is now indeed on his way back to English football, with a move to Villa Park now on the offing for the player.
The journalist claimed that the West Midlands club have reached an agreement with Barca over a loan deal for the centre-back and have also agreed personal terms with the 28-year-old.
He added that the former Tottenham man will travel to England to have his medical alter today.

Spurs Web Opinion
Emery has seemingly signed Lenglet as cover for Pau Torres following the injury to Tyrone Mings. I do not think any Spurs fan would be too displeased at the club’s decision not to move for the Frenchman.
However, I do wonder what this means for Eric Dier’s and Davinson Sanchez’s futures as I think there is now a decent chance that one of the two remain at Spurs.
