Here's the full article from The Athletic, by David Ornstein, who broke the story. Posted at 1730 today.

ASTON VILLA AGREE DEAL TO SIGN YOURI TIELEMANS

Aston Villa have agreed a deal to sign Youri Tielemans.

He is now undergoing a medical.

The former Leicester City midfielder departed the King Power Stadium this summer after his contract expired. He has previously been heavily linked with clubs in the Champions League and there has been competition from across Europe for his signature.

The 26-year-old is now on the cusp of becoming Villa’s first signing of the summer as they prepare for next season. They qualified for the Europa Conference League after finishing seventh in the Premier League last campaign.

The Athletic reported earlier this week that Villa had joined the race to sign him.

Tielemans joined Leicester from AS Monaco, initially on loan in January 2019, before the move was made permanent six months later.

The Belgium international made 195 appearances for Leicester during his four years at the King Power, helping guide the side to consecutive fifth-place finishes in 2019 and 2020, and played a key role in his former side’s FA Cup triumph in 2021, scoring the winner against Chelsea at Wembley.

Leicester were relegated at the end of last season.

Signed with one thing in mind - score the winner and win the Holy Grail next May.

Leicester fans seemed to be split 50/50 on their forums as to his effort/form so I am unsure about this but if Unai wants him then that tells me it's the right decision.

Hopefully he will be brilliant.

Thanks to the above and once saw the thread title must have been confirmed.
Great signing and he's a great addition to the midfield.
Exciting.

Good player on his day and seems intelligent and tactically aware. Think he needed a move so hopefully will get back to his best.

You’d hope that the completion will keep him on his toes.  Dendonker to Kamara is the only obvious drop off in quality.

Good news, didn't know his contract had expired, well done Villa and once again, we have made a signing nobody knew about.

A midfielder who can reliably hit the target from 25-30 yards is something we've been lacking. Adds another source of goals.

We need to be able to rotate any one of our starting players with confidence that the drop off won’t be extreme. We are at least 3 or 4 really excellent players away from that heading into next season. And hopefully the windows after that we will continue to do the same and positively evolve. Also we have some talented kids coming back so in midfield the likes of Tim and JPB will get a chance to show off their ability.

Made more tackles than any of our midfielders this season.
Ranks 10th for most tackles in the league.

Can't argue with this as a free, before this season he was expected to go to Arsenal so he's obviously talented.
