Aston Villa are in discussions with Hibs over the transfer of John McGinn to the English Championship club.

Aston Villa have snatched Hibernian midfielder John McGinn from under Celtic's nose, after they announced his signing for an undisclosed fee on their official website.

"I think Celtic have matched the offer but I think Villa are in the driving position at the minute".

But it seems Aston Villa are set to beat them to the post for the Scotland worldwide over the next 24 hours.

"I have not spoken to him on it yet, but as far as I'm aware they are certainly in a really strong position in terms of getting his services".

Rodgers is also reported to be still interested in resigning Jason Denayer from Manchester City, and left-back Emilio Izaguirre as well as super-John McGinn from Hibs.

"I know Steve well, I had a good chat with him on a number of occasions about John".

He has now signed a four-year contract at Villa Park where he will be expected to be a leading player, as the Villans look to push towards promotion having missed out on going up, when they lost in the Championship play-off final last season.

Villa have had a relatively quiet summer as they window approaches, having only signed goalkeeper Orjan Nyland on a permanent deal. "I have one or two (targets) in mind, not direct replacements for John, but different types of players that we feel could enhance, not just the squad, but the team".
