Aston Villa confirm Jordan Amavi signing
Aston Villa have announced the arrival of defender Jordan Amavi from French side Nice for an undisclosed fee.
The 21-year-old has joined the West Midlands outfit on a five-year contract.
"I'm delighted to have secured the services of someone we consider to be a terrific young player," Villa boss Tim Sherwood told the club's official website.
"Jordan has been one of the outstanding players in Ligue 1 and is still very young and can become even better. There were a lot of clubs after him this summer so we are really pleased to welcome him to the club."
Amavi scored four goals in 55 games during his time at Nice.
