Transfer roundup: Villa deal for Sarr set to collapse, Bryan Gil to join Valencia

The £25m deal between Aston Villa and Watford for Ismaïla Sarr is in danger of collapsing after the Premier League club failed to agree personal terms with the Senegal forward.

The 24-year-old looked set to move after the two clubs settled on the fee but it now looks like he will stay at Vicarage Road.

Villa have allowed Bertrand Traoré to join İstanbul Başakşehir on a season-long loan. The 26-year-old winger joined Villa from Lyon for a fee around £17m in 2020. The Burkina Faso international has made 55 Premier League appearances and scored nine goals for Villa in two seasons.

West Ham have completed a deal to sign Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri for a fee of £13m plus £2m add-ons. The player still has to have a medical.

The Tottenham winger Bryan Gil is close to joining Valencia on loan for the season with no option to buy. The move comes after Giovani Lo Celso went to Villarreal on a similar deal and Tanguy Ndombele arrived at Napoli, also a loan deal but with a €30m (£25.4m) buy option.
