Zat Knight To Sign Today
Villa boss Martin O'Neill confirmed last night that Fulham captain Zat Knight should be completing formalities and joining Villa today.
'We are very close. We've got one or two things to tie up with Fulham and we hope to do that in the morning.'
Zat was a regular England U21 international and was also brought into the full England squad. Kevin Keegan bought him for Fulham in 1999.
Knight will be the third full signing following Nigel Reo-Coker and Marlon Harewood to Villa Park, as well as Liverpool keeper Scott Carson on loan for the season.
Mr O'Neill, you spoil us, you really do!
