The Scottish Sun reports that Villa are in discussions with Easter Road bosses as they look to push through a deal before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

Celtic have had three bids for the player knocked back by Hibs. The last was said to be around £2million.

Hibs are understood to be holding out for close to double that amount and will now see if Villa can make a satisfactory offer.

The Scottish international is in the final year of his contract.
