Lambert hopeful over Ahmadi

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is "very hopeful" the club can complete the signing of Karim El Ahmadi from Feyenoord.

• Bent: Future is bright

Morocco midfielder Ahmadi, 27, is said to be rated at around £3 million by his club and Lambert feels things are progressing well.

Lambert said: "We're in talks at this moment. Those talks are ongoing and we hope to reach a positive conclusion with Feyenoord and the player.

"Karim is a player who I feel could definitely improve our squad. He has experience of big club football and also at international level. He can pass the ball well and he could be an important player for us in central midfield. Let's see how things progress. We're very hopeful."

Ahmadi joined Feyenoord from FC Twente in 2008 for €5 million.
