An announcement for on a move to Aston Villa for Abel Hernandez in a ‘Championship-record’ deal was something the Villa owner had said on Twitter could be expected today.

The Sun had also reported a £20m bid was made for Hernandez over the weekend with £14m of that to be paid to Hull upfront by Villa who would then pay £3m on add-ons based on ‘promotion achievements’ and a further £3m based on ‘goals and appearances.’

With Villa owner Dr Tony Xia was said to have written on Twitter that the Championship side had been ‘trying whole summer’ to sign the 26-year-old, who has scored 25-goals in 67-matches for Hull since his own club record to City.

Despite these social media claims and redtop reports Sky Sports has today said a KCOM Stadium exit isn’t something we’re expecting to happen with the 26-year-old Uruguayan international at ‘this stage’ of the window.
