AVFC are edging closer to signing the winger
Aston Villa are edging closer to the signing of Robert Snodgrass with the West Ham United winger set to undergo a medical today.
Sunderland were interested in taking the Scotland international to the Stadium of Light while Birmingham City were also said to be monitoring the situation, but Villa look to have won the race.
Snodgrass has been told he can leave West Ham only seven months after joining the club from Hull City – where he previously worked with Steve Bruce.
Speaking ahead of Villa’s trip to Bristol City this evening, Bruce said: “I had the pleasure to work with him, very briefly, at Hull.“He’s got all of the stuff you talk about, experience, quality, in abundance. He’s been there, done it and got the t-shirt.
“It hasn’t quite worked out for him at West Ham.
“He will add that bit of sparkle, if you like, up front. He can play in any position across the front line and is a very good player.
“Let’s hope we can do something.”
Snodgrass is expected to join Villa on a season-long loan deal with the option to buy.
