According to Matteo Moretto and Fabrizio Romano, the midfielder is leaving for Aston Villa, where coach Steven Gerrard’s interest in the player has been known for several months. Firmly established in the top 10 of the Premier League, the Hammers will not play the Champions League next year, unlike OM or Atletico Madrid, long tipped as the player’s future club. The transfer has not been formalized.
