Premier League side Aston Villa have succesfully made their 10th signing of the season as they rope in Spanish wonderkid Adama Traore. Villa have completed the move for a bargain deal of £12 million.

The highly rated winger has rejected Liverpool and Stoke City to join Tim Sherwood’s Aston Villa side. He was also a target of Manchester United but in recent weeks, Liverpool were favourites to sign the youngster.

The winger attracted interest from a number of clubs after the reserve side were relegated to Segunda B division.

Aston Villa tweeted to confirm the official news:

FC Barcelona too tweeted to confirm the news:

Traore joined Barcelona’s youth setup in 2004 at the age of eight and in 2013 he was promoted to the club’s ‘B’ team, before making his debut later that year.

Traore played his first La Liga game at the age of only 17, replacing Neymar in a home win over Granada and just a few days later he also played in his first Champions League match.

The winger has appeared 4 times for the Catalan giants and 63 times for the Barcelona ‘B’ team.

Capped 22 times for different Spanish youth set ups, the young man was a part of Barcelona’s youth team which won UEFA Youth Cup in 2013-14.
