Wesley says he’s proud to be Aston Villa’s record signing as he sets his sights on proving why the club broke it to buy him.
The powerful forward is looking forward to Premier League football this coming season after arriving from Belgian side, Club Brugge.
He appreciates the need to “settle quickly” and then hopes to fire us to a successful season.
He told Club TV: “I’m really happy to sign for Aston Villa.
“I was very happy when I heard that Aston Villa were interested in me – and for a record fee.
“I’m just hoping that now I’ll be able to show why out on the pitch. I’m hoping to prove myself on the pitch.
“For me the Premier League is a real stage – a great division. I’m hoping I can adapt quickly and show what I’ve got to offer.
“You’re going to see a lot of power and a lot of quality. I’m really happy to have the chance to play in the Premier League and I’m hoping to play well and score lots of goals.
“I hope to help Aston Villa as best as I can.”
