Colombia striker Jhon Durán set to join Aston Villa


LONDON (AP) — Aston Villa reached an agreement to sign Colombia striker Jhon Durán from Major League Soccer team Chicago Fire for a reported $18 million on Monday.

The 19-year-old Durán scored eight goals in 22 appearances for the Fire last season and has played three times for Colombia.

Villa said the deal was subject to Durán passing a medical examination, agreeing to personal terms, and obtaining a working visa.

Durán will become Villa’s second signing of the January transfer window, after left back Alex Moreno from Real Betis.
