Confirmed: This Aston Villa transfer target has headed elsewhere

Ampadu, 18, was tipped at one stage to join Villa and become another recruit of what has been a quite remarkable transfer window to date for the club, with more additions expected in the coming weeks.
Clubs in the Championship were understood to be willing to offer former Exeter starlet Ampadu regular game-time too, but the offer of Champions League football has proven to be too great to pass up.
Villa, meanwhile, are close to adding both Trezeguet from Kasimpasa and Douglas Luiz from Manchester City – their ninth and tenth signings of the window respectively.
