ISMAILA SARR'S proposed move to Aston Villa from Watford is off, according to reports.
The deal has collapsed due to Villa failing to agree personal terms and they have now withdrawn their offer.
The Telegraph claimed that the transfer is unlikely unless there are big changes in demands and it seems Villa themselves have pulled a plug on the deal.
The transfer was set to cost Steven Gerrard's side £25million.
Over the weekend, Aston Villa and the Hornets discussed Kortney Hause and Cameron Archer joining the Championship side on loan but issues have emerged.
Sarr has featured in three of Watford's five games this season missing the last two perhaps hinting at a potential move.

They paid Rennes around £30million for the 24-year-old's services back in 2019.
Rob Edwards' side were in danger of having their attack dismantled with Emmanuel Dennis already at Nottingham Forest and Joao Pedro attracting interest from Newcastle.
As for Villa, they have loaned out Bertrand Traore to Istanbul Basaksehir and will therefore be desperate to add attacking reinforcements.
