Aston Villa and Chelsea have reportedly reached an agreement for a big-money transfer, with just the player’s contract details yet to be completed.

The Villans are moving closer to being freed of concerns associated with the Premier League’s profit and sustainability (PSR) rules as a significant sale is progressing. Jhon Duran, a young striker with significant potential but seen as dispensable by Unai Emery, appears to be on his way to Premier League rivals Chelsea.

Colombian publication En La Juganda RCN reports Villa have agreed to sell Duran to the Blues for a fee close to €50 million (£42.1 million). The 20-year-old arrived from Chicago Fire for £18 million just 18 months ago, leaving Villa £24.1 million in the green.

This deal, if finalised, will be a significant help to Villa as they are currently on course to breach PSR and could face sanctions. Duran being sold for such a significant fee should be enough to at least revoke fears of punishment, it just wouldn’t be sufficient for Villa to go and spend big themselves.

The report from En La Juganda RCN claims Chelsea are currently in contact with the player to negotiate personal terms. All parties associated with the deal are pushing to finalise it as soon as possible as Chelsea believe the transfer represents excellent value. The player, meanwhile, is keen on the move.
