Video:Miguel Veloso Signs For Villa, Fact Or Rumour?

Miguel Veloso is heading to Aston Villa? I reckon the rumour should have some substance since it has been circulating for a while now.

The fact that Veloso is renowned as being a fine reader of the game and only 23 should make him the perfect replacement for Barry in midfield.

The Sporting Lisbon star midfielder is the son of ex-Portugal star Antonio Veloso.

Aston Villa are ready to match Sporting's asking price, as they seek a replacement for Gareth Barry. Veloso is keen to sort out his future soon, saying, "I am prepared to move abroad - but I don't want things in doubt for the entire summer."- The Mirror

Most Villa fans will be hoping that Martin O'neill will sign him to bolster the midfield and pick up where Barry left off. Sporting Lisbon are demanding €13.8million for Veloso.

Full Name:Miguel Luis Pinto Veloso
Birth Date:May 11, 1986
Birth Place:Portugal
Weight:79 kg
Squad Number:24
