Villa Agree Mccann Fee

by Mark Rowan @Everton

Gavin McCann is on the verge of leaving Sunderland after they Wearsiders agreed to sell him to Aston Villa.

The Stadium of Light outfit are desperate to offload some of their high wage earners following their relegation to Division One and McCann looks like being the first casualty.

A fee of £2.25 million has been agreed and the 25-year-old has now been given permission to discuss personal terms with Villa boss David O'Leary.

McCann had been the subject of an enquiry from David Moyes and a return to Goodison Park looked a distinct possibility, but the Blues were reluctant to meet Sunderland's asking price for a player they sold for only £500,000 in 1998.

If the deal between Sunderland and Aston Villa does go through Everton won't loose out altogether as they will be owed 25 per cent of the transfer fee as part of the deal that saw McCann make the move to Wearside.
