Turf Moor to Villa Park

Turf Moor to Villa Park

On this day in 1979, Tony Morley joined Villa from Burnley.

The flamboyant winger cost £200,000, and it was money well spent. His mesmeric runs down the left flank paved the way for countless goals, plus 34 of his own during a 180-game career in claret-and-blue. Morley was also a member of our title-winning team in 1981 and it was his semi-final goal against Anderlecht that took Villa to the 1982 European Cup final.
