Cape Town - England midfielder Tom Cleverley has placed his move to Aston Villa in doubt after failing to reduce his wage expectations.

The Telegraph report that Aston Villa could fail in their bid to bring in the 25-year-old midfielder.

The £8 million deal taking Cleverley from Manchester United to Aston Villa may be in jeopardy after the player refused to lower his £60,000-a-week wage demands.

After being told he has no future at Old Trafford, Cleverley has caught the attention of Aston Villa, Hull and Valencia.

Aston Villa have agreed a deal with Manchester United but boss Paul Lambert hinted the deal is far from done: “He’s still a Manchester United player and nothing has moved forward on that one at the moment.”
