Aston Villa are in advanced talks with West Ham United about taking Robert Snodgrass on loan for the season, according to Sky Sports.

Villa boss Steve Bruce knows Snodgrass well after the pair worked together at Hull City and despite interest from Birmingham City and Sunderland, Villa look the most likely destination for the 29-year-old.
