City values the Republic of Ireland No. 1 around £4 million, which is roughly half the transfer fee they paid in 2009.
Although Given is one of the more veteran players in England, he has the ability and skill to continue playing top-flight football.
With his shot-stopping ability and invaluable experience, the Irishman could still be the first-choice keeper for City. However, Joe Hart's meteoric rise and outstanding form has forced Given into a backup role.
The former Newcastle star did not lose his place due to poor form. The shoulder injury, and Hart's emergence as an elite young goalkeeper, kept him from reclaiming his place as the club's No. 1 keeper.
With only one appearance last campaign, Given has become a forgotten figure at City. He is still a great keeper with world-class shot-stopping ability.
Aston Villa looks set to sign the Irishman for a fee in the region of £4 million, which is an absolute steal. The club could land an experienced, hungry and top-quality keeper for a bargain price.
City's large, talented and expensive squad has forced the club to sell players for discounted transfer fees.
Given has all the qualities to reclaim his place amongst the best goalkeepers in England's top-flight. The Republic of Ireland international is the best value on the market at City's current asking price.
If Aston Villa completes the swoop for Given, he could prove to be the EPL's best summer signing in terms of value.
