Breaking news: Villa sign Veretout

Aston Villa is delighted to announce the signing of French midfielder Jordan Veretout.

The 22-year-old arrives at the club on a five-year deal and joins us from Ligue 1 club Nantes, which has been his home club since 2003, for an undisclosed fee.

Veretout is a France youth international, having represented his country at U18-U21 levels, including winning the U20 World Cup.

He is the fourth player to arrive in B6 from Ligue 1 this summer after Jordan Amavi, Idrissa Gueye and Jordan Ayew.

Manager Tim Sherwood said: "I'm really pleased Jordan decided to choose Aston Villa over the other options he had and opt to continue his development with us.

"He is only 22-years-old but he is vastly experienced for someone that age.

"He has played over 140 games in France and is a really exciting young player.

"I know he is very highly rated over in France so we are delighted to get this deal over the line."
