Burnley and Aston Villa are in advancing talks over the potential transfer of Aaron Ramsey.
The fee for the 20-year-old midfielder is expected to be in the region of £12million.
Ramsey spent last season on loan in the Championship, first with Norwich City and later with Middlesbrough, making 29 appearances in the second tier across both spells and scoring eight goals.
Burnley have been busy in the transfer window this summer since promotion from the Championship.

They have made nine signings, including Nathan Redmond, James Trafford, Zeki Amdouni and Dara O’Shea. Michael Obafemi and Jordan Beyer have also returned on permanent deals after loan spells at Burnley last season.
Ramsey, whose older brother Jacob is also at Villa, has not made a Premier League appearance for the club but was a member of the 2021 Youth Cup-winning squad.
