Senegal international, Ismaila Sarr’s expected move to English Premier League (EPL) side, Aston Villa, has allegedly collapsed.
According to Sky Sports, the deal has fallen as a result of a number of stumbling blocks that led to Villa withdrawing from the negotiations.
An agreement on Sarr’s transfer – for a fee worth more than £25m with add-ons – on Saturday had been reached and the Senegal star was set to undergo a medical today (Monday).
However, problems emerged when the Watford and Villa started a discussion on the details of the deal that included the possibility of Cameron Archer or Kortney Hause joining the Championship side (Watford) on loan.
Steven Gerrard and Villa’s bosses had growing reservations over the deal, and have walked away.
Sarr is now expected to remain with the Championship team this term, unless a fresh bid from another club comes in.
This season, Sarr scored a fantastic long-range goal which caught attention of many football fans.
