Aston Villa have agreed a fee with Manchester City to sign central defender Richard Dunne.
The 29-year-old City skipper is travelling to the Midlands for talks about a move to Villa Park, after nine years with the Eastlands club.
Villa boss Martin O'Neill is trying to bolster his backline before the end of the transfer window, having already lined up a move for Stephen Warnock from Blackburn Rovers.
Portsmouth defender Sylvain Distin had also been linked with a move to Villa Park, although he is set to join Everton rather than be reunited with his former City team-mate.
Republic of Ireland international Dunne has been a first-team regular at City in recent seasons, but following the arrival of Kolo Toure and Joleon Lescott has been forced to consider his options.
