He captained Villa in their 6-0 Carabao Cup win at Barrow last week but with an abundance of midfielders, Dean Smith was keen for the 30-year-old to move on.
He impressed while on loan at Swansea City last season and Jokanovic hopes he can provide the experience and goal threat his side lack to help push for promotion.
Jokanovic underlined at the weekend how the board had promised to deliver signings to give him a fighting chance of promotion and he is hoping for a couple of new additions to arrive before the deadline closes.
