Aston Villa Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of Jacob Bedeau from Bury.
The highly-rated 17-year-old moves to Villa Park for an undisclosed fee and has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal.
Once on the books at Leyton Orient, Bedeau has been with Bury since impressing while on trial at Gigg Lane.
He has made seven appearances for the Shakers in League One this term.
He said: “This is such a massive opportunity for me at such a young age.
“I’m looking forward to taking that opportunity and developing even more at such a big club.
“I’ll always be grateful to Bury for giving me a chance so I would like to say thank you to them and wish them all the best for the rest of the season.
“I can’t wait to get started at Aston Villa.”
