Aston Villa are moving for free agent Josh King.

VG says Villa face competition from newly promoted Norwich and Scottish giants Celtic.

King has struggled to impress at Everton after joining on a short-term deal from Bournemouth in January.

The Toffees have decided not to extend his stay at Goodison but several clubs are still keen on him.

King was understood to be earning £45,000-a-week at Everton.

Former Manchester United trainee King would likely have to settle for a backup role at Villa Park too.
