Tom Cleverley transfer latest: Manchester United midfielder 'could still complete season-long loan move' to Aston Villa - report

Premier League has to accept paperwork, according to a report

Tom Cleverley could still leave Manchester United - even though the transfer window shut last night.

According to a BBC journalist, Cleverley could yet complete a loan move to Aston Villa.

Paul Lambert, as well as a number of other clubs, had been linked with a move for Cleverley before Everton came in and became favourites for the 25-year-old England midfielder.

Cleverley's wage demands causes the deal to Everton to fall through and Villa are said to have made a late move to take him on loan at Villa Park.
