Aston Villa midfielder James Milner is now on the verge of signing for
James Milner was instrumental behind Villa’s top six finish in the Premier League last season. The 24-year-old can play at various positions in the midfield. City manager is delighted to have the box-to-box midfielder in his squad and has said that the deal would be completed in a day or two.
It is believed that James Milner would be City’s last big-money signing this summer. They have already spent around £100 million to land the players like Jerome Boateng, David Silva, Yaya Youre, Aleksandar Kolarov and Mario Balotelli. Milner’s signing would take their total summer spending to over £120 million.
Meanwhile, Craig Bellamy, another out-of-favor City player, has surprisingly joined his home-town club
James Milner joined Aston Villa in 2008 and has been a central figure at the club over the last two years. He played his last match for Villa last Saturday when he scored a goal in his side’s 3-0 win over West Ham United.
