The 23-year-old is predominantly a centre-back, but he can also play as a left-back, which means he can fill two major problem positions for Dean Smith.
Villa initially tabled an offer in the region of £2million for Hause, but Wolves were demanding more.
The Daily Mail reported yesterday that Aston Villa were negotiating a revised deal as Smith is desperately looking to sign a centre-back in January.
The report claimed that Villa are looking to take Hause on loan until the end of the season with a view to sign him permanently in the summer.
West Brom were linked with a move for Hause last week, but it seems he is heading to Villa Park instead.
