Aston Villa confirm Jordan Amavi signing

Aston Villa confirm the signing of defender Jordan Amavi from Nice for an undisclosed fee.

Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of defender Jordan Amavi from Nice on a five-year contract.

The 21-year-old Frenchman has joined the Premier League club for an undisclosed fee.

Amavi scored four goals in 55 appearances for Nice after graduating from their youth system.

"I'm delighted to have secured the services of someone we consider to be a terrific young player," manager Tim Sherwood told Villa'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, who has won four caps for France's Under-21 side, is due to meet his new teammates on Monday.
