Looks like the earlier rumour, see: AVFC Transfer Talk - Dutch Defending Incoming? is right.
skysports.com quote Feyenoord`s Karim El Ahmadi via RTV Rijnmond confirming talks are underway.
He says: 'This is a dream for every player. I hope it will go through. I was on the verge of extending my contract but then this came along. I am 27, that's an age where you can look for a new challenge."
He says the Premiership is the 'best league in the world` and the report says he is already in England and waiting for confirmation of an agreement between the clubs before he talks terms.
A contact on Facebook just sent me a message (thanks Ivan)
"Almadi was last year voted best midfielder in the Dutch comp which dragged Feynoord to 2 place in the table.. yes he did play in Dubai 2 years ago but this year was one of the best midfielders !!! He will be a bargin and a good player for Villa..."
