Aston Villa have until Friday to make a move for Hull City striker Abel Hernandez as the Tigers don’t want the saga to drag on until next week.

The 26-year-old striker is one of the 13 fit senior players Hull have in their ranks at the moment, but the Tigers are struggling to hold on to him during the last week of the transfer window.

Aston Villa are interested in snapping up the forward in the final stretch of the summer window, but according to Italian outlet Tutto Mercato, both the player and his suitors have been served a deadline to get the deal done.

Hull have grudgingly accepted that Hernandez could leave the club this summer, but it has been claimed that they want any proposed offer from Villa to land on their door step by Friday.

Following their game against Manchester United this Saturday, Hernandez will leave for national team duty and the Tigers want to sort out his future before the weekend.  


If Villa don’t follow up on their interest in the Uruguayan with a concrete offer by Friday, Hull are not expected to entertain any discussions about player departures in the final days of the window.

Hull are expected to open talks over a new contract for Hernandez should he continue at the KC Stadium beyond the end of the transfer window.
