Aston Villa is pleased to confirm the signing of goalkeeper Ørjan Nyland for an undisclosed fee from German side FC Ingolstadt.

The Norwegian internationalist has agreed a three-year deal. 

After starting his career in his homeland with IL Hodd and Molde FK, the 27-year-old moved to Ingolstadt in 2015.

Nyland has also been capped by Norway at senior international level. 

He said: "I'm looking forward to playing for this big club and can't wait to get started. 

"Everything has moved very quickly and I'm really happy to be here and call myself a Villa player. 

"I also can't wait to play in front of the fans – I've heard they're quite fantastic. I'm looking forward to experiencing their support for myself. 

"This club belongs in the Premier League and I'm keen to play a part in getting us back there."
