Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-Yueng is stalling on a move to Aston Villa, Goal understands.

3/1 Aston Villa are 3/1 with Bet365 to be relegated from the Premier League
Interest is emerging from bigger clubs around Europe, which has drawn the player's eye.

Swansea want Ki to stay but he does not see a future for himself in South Wales and so the club have agreed terms with Villa.

Paul Lambert had been eager to push through a quick deal for the 25-year-old but that hope now looks no longer possible.

Ki impressed hugely while on loan at Sunderland last season and the Black Cats also maintain an interest in a permanent deal, though they would struggle to match the allure of bigger teams.

The South Korea international won the Capital One Cup with Swansea in 2012-13 before going to Wearside for a season, where he made 34 appearances in all competitions.
