Aston Villa are close to bringing in United States midfielder Michael Bradley on loan, Press Association Sport understands.
Bradley currently plays for German side Borussia Monchengladbach and is the son of USA national coach Bob Bradley, who was linked with the Villa job after Martin O'Neill left the club.
The 23-year-old, who was a key part of his country's 2010 World Cup squad, moved to Germany from Dutch side Heerenveen in the summer of 2008.
