Aston Villa is pleased to announce that Andre Moreira has joined on a season-long loan from Atletico Madrid.
The 22-year-old goalkeeper started his career in his native Portugal before joining Atletico.
Since moving to the Spanish capital, Moreira has spent time on loan with clubs back in his homeland, most recently with Belenenses.
He has also represented Portugal at international level with the U19s, U20s and U21s.
He got his first taste of action in claret and blue earlier this week, keeping a clean sheet in a behind-closed-doors friendly with Stoke City.
He said: “I am very excited. It’s such a big opportunity at such a big club.
“It’s the perfect opportunity at the right moment. It’s a big move for me.
“Aston Villa is a great football club – a famous football club.
"The training facilities are great. I know the stadium is famous and historic. I just can’t wait to get started now.”
