Feyenoord midfielder Karim El Ahmadi has confirmed that he is set to join Premier League side Aston Villa.
The 27-year-old Morocco international has just a year left on his current deal at De Kuip and he had been in talks over an extension.
But new Villa boss Paul Lambert has made his move for the midfielder and now El Ahmadi has revealed he is set to seal a 'dream' move.
"This is a dream for every player. I hope it will go through," he told RTV Rijnmond.
"I was on the verge of extending my contract but then this came along. I am 27, that's an age where you can look for a new challenge.
"For me the Premier League is the best league in the world. I didn't have to think long about it."
El Ahmadi is already in England as he awaits confirmation of an agreement between both clubs.
