Aston Villa Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Jordan Amavi.
The 21-year-old full-back has signed a five-year deal with the Club and joins from French side Nice for an undisclosed fee.
Amavi is a France U21 international and is one of the most highly rated young players in Europe.
Manager Tim Sherwood said: "I'm delighted to have secured the services of someone we consider to be a terrific young player.
"Jordan has been one of the outstanding players in Ligue 1 and is still very young and can become even better.
"There were a lot of clubs after him this summer so we are really pleased to welcome him to the Club."
Amavi will meet his new team-mates for the first time on Monday.
