Now that Aston Villa have accepted Manchester City's offer the clubs will officially announce the deal after the medicals are complete and the players sign. Therefore club statements are expected within the next few hours.
Earlier at a press conference at Eastlands Manchini said; “I think Milner is a good player, an English player which is important. I think that Milner can play in different positions. We have today and tomorrow to close the deal.”
The pressure was on to close the deal because Milner would be cup tied if he played for Villa in Europe and also because of the friction being created by the length of the negotiations.
