Villa confirm Amavi exit with Bacuna to follow

Aston villa boss Steve Bruce has confirmed the imminent departure of winger Leandro Bacuna while Jordan Amavi has joined Marseille.

Amavi, 23, has joined Marseille on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent switch while 25-year-old Bacuna is said to be interesting one of Villa's Championship rivals.

There have been rumours about the duo's future all summer, with Amavi's £8m move to Sevilla breaking down last month, while Villa rejected Reading's bid for Bacuna.

Former France Under-21 international Amavi cost £7.7m when he moved to Villa Park from Nice in July 2015 on a five-year deal but he dropped down the Villans' pecking order and will now look to reignite his career in Ligue 1.

It seems as though Bacuna's time in the Midlands is also up as Bruce said: "There's a Championship club after Bacuna, that looks close to being over the line too."
