David Villa looks set for January move to Premier League

David Villa could be set for a January move to the Premier League with reports that his current club Valencia are struggling to balance the books. The Spanish striker was linked to a number of English clubs following Euro 2008 but decided to stay with the La Liga club.

Valencia failed to qualify for the Champions League and have to pay a bill of 50 million euros before the end of the year. The club's money troubles means that they'll have to sell off their best players including Edu, Morientes and Villa.

Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea were all sniffing around the 40 million rated Villa in the summer, but they may be able to pick up the 27-year-old for a knock down price in the Janurary transfer window.
