Aston Villa are still striving to thrash out a deal to make Chelsea midfielder Steve Sidwell their first summer signing.

Reports on Wednesday that Villa had already agreed a fee for the 25-year-old player were described as "premature" by sources close to the midlands club but Villa are still optimistic a fee - believed to be in the region of £5million - will eventually be struck with Chelsea, although it may not happen until next week.

Sidwell has been one of manager Martin O´Neill´s main transfer targets since the season ended.
