James Chester joined Villa from West Brom in the summer transfer window of season 2016/17 and became Roberto Di Matteo’s fifth signing.

Chester followed in the footsteps of Tommy Elphick, Pierluigi Gollini, Aaron Tshibola and Ross McCormack in arriving in B6.

He completed his move on a four year deal from neighbours West Brom.

Traditionally a centre-half, Chester is a versatile player and can play anywhere across the back four.

Born in Warrington, Chester started his career with Manchester United and made one first-team appearance. 

He came off the bench in the club’s League Cup semi-final second leg success over Derby in January 2009.

He duly attracted the attention of Championship club Hull in January 2011 and completed a permanent move to the KC Stadium.

Chester helped the Humberside outfit secure promotion to the Premier League in 2012/13 and ended the subsequent campaign with an FA Cup runners-up medal - his well-taken goal opening the scoring against Arsenal at Wembley before an agonising 3-2 extra-time defeat.

Chester went on to make his debut for Wales in June 2014, starting a 2-0 defeat in Holland.

Having helped Wales qualify for Euro 2016, the country's first major tournament since 1958, Chester was an integral member of his national team's memorable run to the semi-finals in France.

On the domestic front, he joined Albion in the summer of 2015 and made his Baggies debut in the opening game of the club’s 2015/16 Barclays Premier League campaign, a home defeat against Manchester City.

Chester made 19 outings for the Baggies in his maiden season at The Hawthorns.
