Nicklas Helenius: Has scored 30 league goals in his last two seasons for AaB

Helenius, who has two caps for his country, scored 16 goals in 33 league games last season after netting 14 times in 2011/12.

The striker was voted Denmark's Player of the Year on UEFA's website, and is expected to fly in for a medical at Villa Park once the two clubs agree a fee. That is something that the player clearly wishes to happen.

"I hope that AaB will show enough cooperation and not demand too much money for me," Helenius told Nordjyske.

"The market is not ready for big transfers at the moment.

"I have already secured the club a lot of money through my goals, and I am on my first professional contract. So I am not making an awful lot of money."

Aston Villa have already added to their squad this summer, with Aleksander Tonev arriving from Lech Poznan for around €3million.
