Villa target wants quick deal
Aston Villa, Updated:
Feyenoord midfielder Karim El Ahmadi is hoping his move to Aston Villa goes through and described the transfer as 'a dream'.
Villa chief Paul Lambert revealed on Tuesday that they were hoping 'to reach a positive conclusion' with the 27-year-old Moroccan star's club side over a deal thought to be worth around £3million.
And El Ahmadi, who spent four seasons with FC Twente before signing for Feyenoord in 2008 for five million euros and has 10 caps for Morocco, confirmed that a switch to Villa Park is something that appeals greatly.
"This is a dream for any player. I hope that the move will take place. It's now up to the clubs to reach an agreement," He told RTV Rijnmond.
"I was on the verge of signing a new deal when this came up. I am 27 and that's the perfect age for a new challenge. The Premier League is the best league in the world in my opinion. I didn't need to think long about this.
"Everything is great here. If the clubs reached an agreement, it can be a done deal very quickly."
Ahmadi is known for his strong defensive qualities and would become Lambert's first major signing since replacing Alex McLeish as Villa manager last month.
