Villa seek N'Zogbia conclusion soon
N'Zogbia is due to fly back from a holiday to undergo a medical on Friday after Villa and Wigan reached agreement over a compromise £9.5million deal. Villa do not anticipate any problems in that department with the 25-year-old poised to put pen to paper on a five-year contract next week.
McLeish said: "We're arranging a medical for Charles and, pending that, he should be a Villa player next week."
N'Zogbia will become Villa's second signing of the summer after keeper Shay Given moved from Manchester City in a £3.5million deal.
But McLeish will take nothing for granted until N'Zogbia has signed on the dotted line after the 11th-hour collapse of a move to Birmingham last season when in charge at St Andrew's.
McLeish has intimated N'Zogbia will be his last major signing of the current transfer window.
