Aston Villa have acquired the services of midfielder Jordan Veretout from French side Nantes for an undisclosed fee.

The Frenchman is thought to have undergone a medical earlier today, before agreeing terms over a five-year contract with the West Midlands outfit.

"I'm really pleased Jordan decided to choose Aston Villa over the other options he had and opt to continue his development with us. I know he is very highly rated over in France so we are delighted to get this deal over the line." manager Tim Sherwood told the club's official website.

Alongside Veretout, Villa have also brought in Rudy Gestede, Jordan Ayew and Jose Angel Crespo this week.
