Aston Villa loan Liverpool's Tiago Ilori

Aston Villa are set to complete the season-long loan deal for Liverpool's Portuguese centre-half Tiago Ilori.


The move could include an option-to-buy for Tim Sherwood's Villa, having already captured Joleon Lescott from rivals West Brom.

They have furthered boost their back-line with the addition of the 22-year-old, formerly of Sporting Lisbon, in a loan deal that is thought to cost around £1million.

He arrived at Liverpool in the summer of 2013 and is yet to play a first-team game for the Anfield side, having had loan spells at both Grenada and Bordeaux.

Ilori, who has 10 caps for Portugal at Under-21 level, was born in England but joined the youth intake at Lisbon in 2006.
