Aston Villa completed the signing of Adama Traore from Barcelona earlier today.
The young winger signed a five-year deal with Tim Sherwood’s men, arriving after progressing through the famous La Masia academy and building a reputation as one of the best prospects in their team.
Renowned for his pace and trickery on the ball, Traore looks to have all the skills required to become one of the best players in the Premier League.
He is still only 19-years-old, but he will likely fit straight into Sherwood’s team this season. He looks a perfect fit for the coach’s brand of attacking football, and many believe Villa have completed one of the signings of the summer by securing the youngster.
Speaking to the club website following the move, Traore showed his excitement at the move, and his honour to play for a club such as Villa.
He said: “It's an honour for me to come here. It's a club that showed interest in me from the first moment and made me feel important in terms of their project.”
Traore’s arrival was met with extremely positive reaction by all Aston Villa fans, and we collect some of the best responses from Twitter concerning the youngster’s move to Villa Park.

Adams Traore is legit amazing. Young, quick and great dribbler. That's what I've seen of him in the U20 World Cup.— IzStev (@IzStev) August 14, 2015
