According to English news outlets Mirror and Daily Mail, Tanzanian striker Ally Samatta is on the verge of completing a £8.4million move to Premier League side Aston Villa from Belgian outfit Genk.

The 27-year-old, who is famous for scoring against Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League group stages, has bagged an impressive 76 goals for "The Smurfs" in just 191 appearances.

Villa are in need of reinforcements up-front following the season-ending injury sustained by club-record signing Wesley during the win over Burnley.

However, it's thought that due to Samatta needing a work permit, that he's not likely to be available for Villa's clash with Brighton this weekend.
