Nicklas Helenius has stated his desire to leave AaB Aalborg as Aston Villa close in on signing the Danish international striker.
Some reports in Denmark claim that the two clubs have agreed a fee for the 22-year-old forward which could be as little as £2million because he is out of contract in 12 months' time.
Villa have revealed that they are in negotiations with Aalborg for Helenius, who has two caps for his country and 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."
