Aston Villa manager David O'Leary is increasingly optimistic that Portsmouth midfielder Amdy Faye and Newcastle defender Andy O'Brien will soon arrive in a 5million double swoop.

O'Leary was dealt a setback when Southampton striker James Beattie turned down Villa and agreed to join Everton in a transfer which was being finalised today.

But he has moved quickly to try and bring in new blood to supplement one of the smallest squads in the Premiership.

The Villa boss now hopes to complete deals for Faye and O'Brien before the end of the January transfer window.

Faye would cost Villa around 2m - £500,000 more than Portsmouth paid Auxerre for his services 16 months ago.

The 27-year-old has made 50 appearances for Pompey and was a member of Senegal's squad which reached the 2002 World Cup quarter-finals in Japan.

Looks like certain deals are hinging on each other on wether they happen or not.

Aston Villa have officially withdrawn their interest in Portsmouth midfielder Amdy Faye.

The Senegal international had been linked with a 2million switch to Villa Park but Portsmouth have been informed that David O'Leary has decided to look elsewhere.

Villa chairman Doug Ellis told www.avfc.co.uk:"There have been reports this morning that Middlesbrough are about to beat us to the punch but that is simply not the case.

"I don't know whether or not they are after the player but that is their business.

"Negotiations are at an advanced stage but the manager has decided not to pursue the player. That's David's prerogative and we move on."

Aston Villa have made an enquiry for Newcastle United defender Andy O'Brien.

Villa boss David O'Leary is keen to bolster his squad and has made a new defender one of his top targets.

O'Leary is believed to have made an offer in the region of 3 million for Republic of Ireland international O'Brien.

O'Brien's future at Newcastle is in doubt following the arrival of Jean-Alain Boumsong and the club's pursuit of Sylvain Distin and Bayern Munich defender Samuel Kuffour.
