Watford are close to agreeing a £4million deal for Nice left wing back Hassane Kamara, a 27-year old Ivory Coast international, and are also signing KAS Eupen defensive midfielder Edo Kayembe, 23.

Claudio Ranieri also expects to bring in vastly experienced Croatia international defender Domagoj Vida, 32, from Besiktas.

Aston Villa had knocked back a request from Watford to sign Kortney Hause.

Villa are already losing Axel Tuanzebe back to Manchester United prior to his new loan to Napoli. Watford had also asked about Arsenal’s Sead Kolasinac but have opted against that deal to keep other domestic loan options open.

They opened discussions about Kamara last month and know him from previous recruitment discussions when they tried to sign him from Reims prior to his move to Nice.

Kamara is not involved in the African Cup of Nations.
