Transfer news: Bree joins Villa

Aston Villa is delighted to announce the signing of James Bree. 

The 19-year-old full-back arrives at the club on a four-and-a-half-year deal and joins us from Barnsley for an undisclosed fee.

Bree, who linked up with the Oakwell Academy at 14, has progressed through the ranks.

He played a key part in their promotion from League One to the Championship in 2015/16 and becomes Steve Bruce’s third signing of the transfer window.  

Bree said: “I’m delighted to have joined Aston Villa.

“I’ve been at Barnsley since I was young and it’s helped me develop. I will always be grateful. 

“I’m joining a massive club and hopefully I can bring something to this team.

“Steve Bruce was a big factor in my decision, when I met him I knew it was the right move for me. 

“The facilities are great and it’ll be nice to get going, get started and see what I can do this season for the team.”
