Breaking transfer news: Taylor joins Villa

Aston Villa Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Neil Taylor from Swansea City.

The 27-year-old Wales international has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract and arrives at Villa Park for an undisclosed fee and as part of a deal that sees Jordan Ayew move in the opposite direction.

Taylor spent time in the academy at Manchester City and moved to Wrexham before joining Swansea in 2010.

At international level, Taylor was part of the Wales side that reached the semi-final of Euro 2016 in the summer and netted his first goal for his country against Russia during the group stage.

He said: “I loved my time at Swansea but I'm looking forward to this new challenge in my career. 

"You only have to look at the facilities, the stadium and the fanbase to know that this is a huge club that deserves to be in the Premier League. 

"I spoke to James Chester before the move and he had nothing but good things to say about the club so I'm looking forward to getting started."
