Anwar El Ghazi: I love this club

Anwar El Ghazi has got his wish – a permanent move to Aston Villa.

A fortnight on from Play-Off Final victory at Wembley Stadium, the Dutchman has penned a deal to remain in claret and blue for the next four years.

Speaking in his post-match interview after setting us on the way to promotion two weeks ago, El Ghazi made no secret that he wanted to remain at Villa Park.

He said: "I really enjoy it here.

"I love the club and I love the fans.

"This club is amazing and I will be very happy if I can stay here.

"We have to figure it out with Lille but hopefully everything goes well so that I can stay here."

Head Coach Dean Smith is equally delighted to have him back on board as we begin our Premier League venture in the coming months.

Smith said: “Anwar proved to everybody at Wembley how good a player he can be for Aston Villa.

“He’s ready for the step up to the Premier League and he’s a young player who has an awful lot of potential. It’s now my job and the job of the coaching staff and Anwar himself to fulfil the potential that he undoubtedly has.

“He’ll be a great addition to the squad for next season.”
