Aston Villa agree £15m deal to sign Morgan Rogers from Middlesbrough

IKEJA, Nigeria - Jan. 31, 2024 - PRLog -- Morgan Elliot Rogers is an English professional footballer who plays for Middlesbrough as a midfielder or forward. Unai Emery is close to landing his No 1 transfer target after Aston Villa had a package worth about £15m accepted by Middlesbrough for the winger Morgan Rogers. The player is set to undergo a medical in the next 24 hours. Boro were unimpressed with Villa's lowball approach but have reached an agreement to sell Rogers after a back and forth, having dismissed three bids. The 21-year-old is poised to become Villa's second signing this month after the right-back Kosta Nedeljkovic from Red Star Belgrade.

Rogers, who joined Middlesbrough on a permanent deal last summer, was earmarked by Emery as a player who could instantly bolster Villa's frontline. Manchester City, whom Boro paid about £1m for Rogers last summer, stand to benefit from a sell-on clause. The England Under-20 international, who has scored two Championship goals this season, impressed Emery in Boro's FA Cup third-round defeat by Villa this month. Rogers, who can play across the forward line, will provide competition for Moussa Diaby and Leon Bailey. Rogers' arrival places doubt on the future of Jhon Durán, who is seeking more regular game time. Chelsea is among the clubs to have registered an interest in the Colombia striker. The Villa midfielder Jacob Ramsey has been linked with a move but Emery said the 22-year-old was "a very important player".

Villa have been keen on bringing the 21-year-old to the Premier League throughout the winter transfer window and now appear to have won the race for his signature. Rogers has featured 26 times for Middlesbrough in the Championship this season, scoring two goals and registering six assists.
