Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley has impressed while on loan at Premier League side Aston Villa.
Aston Villa are reportedly interested in signing Barkley on a permanent deal but will have to negotiate with Chelsea after failing to add a buy-option in Barkley’s loan deal.
According to Birmingham Mail, Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia will not let Barkley leave Chelsea on the cheap.
Barkley will still have two years left on his contract in the summer, and considering the level of his performances for Aston Villa before his hamstring injury, Granovskaia will demand a big fee for Barkley.
