Aston Villa is delighted to announce the signing of Ezri Konsa from Brentford for an undisclosed fee.
The defender links up with former boss Dean Smith following an impressive campaign for the Bees last term.
After coming through the youth ranks at Charlton Athletic, 21-year-old Konsa was part of the England squad at the recent European U21 Championships in Italy.
He was also a member of the England squad that won the U20 World Cup in 2017.
Head Coach Dean Smith said: “Ezri fits the profile of the type of player we were searching for.
“It helps that Richard O’Kelly and I have worked with him before. He’s a high-potential player who I believe can step up to the Premier League and I’m really looking forward to working with him again.”
Konsa will join the squad for the first time when they fly out to the United States today.
