Aston Villa sign Buendia on five-year deal

Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of Emiliano Buendia from Norwich on a five-year contract for a club-record transfer fee.

“Emiliano has just completed an outstanding season in a championship-winning Norwich side with 31 combined goals and assists and was named player of the season across the league,” Villa head coach Dean Smith told the club website.

“He is equally capable as a wide attacker or as a number 10 and is a great addition to our attacking options. We are delighted to have made such an exciting signing so early in the summer and look forward to Emi joining up with us for a full pre-season.”
