On December 20th, we covered a report from Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws, who claimed Lovre Kalinic of Gent is close to completing a switch to Aston Villa.
It was also reported the Jupiler Pro League side will earn in excess of €10m from the sale of the goalkeeper to the English outfit.
The same publication has another update on the Croatian international and it’s claimed his current club’s manager, Jess Thorup has left the 28-year-old out of the squad to face Cercle Brugge on Friday evening.
HLN mentions if things go well, the final details around the shot stopper’s transfer to Villa Park should be clarified today as he’s already undergone medical tests prior to his transfer to the Championship side.
On Thursday, the transfer fee was mentioned €10m+, but the initial fee agreed between two clubs for Kalinic is around €6m and it could increase by several million depending on bonuses.
Now it’s just missing an announcement.
