Tom Cleverley will find out today whether he can leave Manchester United after Aston Villa asked the Premier League to ratify the move to Villa Park that was in advanced talks at last night’s transfer deadline.
The Daily Mirror reports that Villa made a last minute bid to sign Cleverley on a six month loan.
Although the move wasn’t completed by 11pm, the Villains hope that the Premier League will ratify the transfer with the regulation department compiling a report on the move.
The board will meet later today to decide whether the transfer can be completed.
Villa made the move for Cleverley after Everton ended their interested in the midfielder. The Toffees were unable to agree terms with either United or the player, meaning Villa were free to swoop in and try to sign the England international.
Cleverley has been told that he can leave Old Trafford. The midfielder was given an opportunity to impress United boss Louis van Gaal during pre-season, but the Dutchman has decided that the 25-year-old doesn’t have a place in his first XI.
The midfielder knows that he will need to leave Manchester in order to get first team football. If he doesn’t get his loan move to Villa, Cleverley will have to wait until January to try and restart his career.
