Aston Villa has done significant business this winter, both in and out, and that didn’t stop today either.

Everton may have lost Lucas Digne to Villa, but they brought a player in as well.

Newcastle biding its time

According to a report by Luke Edwards of The Telegraph, Newcastle is taking it slow with deals for players coming in from overseas. It seems the next few days will be slow on the Magpies front, but a defender is still on the cards before Deadline Day.


Arsenal closes in on Arthur

According to independent journalist Tancredi Palmeri, the rumors of Arthur to Arsenal are pushing towards reality. The player has reportedly agreed to the deal.


Aston Villa after a backup goalkeeper

Aston Villa is making move after move, and they’ve come to an agreement on another, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The report states that Villa are in agreement with Roma goalkeeper Robin Olsen, who is on loan at Sheffield United. The 32-year-old Sweden international has lost his place in the Blades’ starting lineup to Wes Foderingham, and now he could make the switch to Villa Park where he would likely back up Emiliano Martinez, who is having a stellar season. Sheffield would have to agree to release him from his loan for the deal to go through.

29-year-old journeyman Jed Steer is currently the backup to Martinez.


Tecatito moves to Spain

According to Fabrizio Romano, Jesus Corona has left Porto and will be moving to Spanish side Sevilla after an impending medical. Tecatito had fallen down the pecking order in Portugal, but suddenly revives his season at a club making a surprising push for the La Liga title, with Sevilla currently sitting second in the table.


No Arsenal bid for Vlahovic yet, but rumors mounting

According to Fiorentino general manager Joe Barone, Arsenal has not yet submitted a bid for attacking sensation Dusan Vlahovic, but that hasn’t stopped the rumors from ramping up. “We’re open to consider all the proposals we’ll receive for Vlahović – no bid is on the table right now,” Barone said.

Yesterday, CBS reporter Ben Jacobs reported that Arsenal is pushing for Vlahovic but the Gunners are struggling to come to an agreement with Fiorentina.

Miguel Delaney reported that the difference remains the structure of the deal, as Arsenal wants to do a tiered structure while Fiorentina wants the entire fee up front. The Evening Standard reported on Tuesday that Arsenal is “ready to intensify talks.”


Everton signs El Ghazi on loan

While Everton sent Lucas Digne to Aston Villa just a day ago, they brought a player back from Villa Park 24 hours later. 26-year-old winger Anwar El Ghazi arrives on a loan for the rest of the season. The Toffees did not state whether there is an option to buy at the end of the campaign, but Fabrizio Romano reports there is.


Villa signs young Scottish defender

According to Football Insider, Aston Villa has agreed to sign 17-year-old center-back Kerr Smith from Dundee United. This has also been reported elsewhere over the last 24 to 48 hours.

The young Scottish youth international was rumored to be followed by the likes of Crystal Palace, Southampton, Manchester United and Everton.

Aston Villa has done big business this winter, already confirming the signings of Lucas Digne from Everton and Philippe Coutinho on loan from Barcelona. That makes Smith the third signing of the window for Villa.
