Guillem Balague reacts on Twitter to Traore signing, explains positives for Villa

Aston Villa

The Sky Sports pundit feels Aston Villa have got a player that should be able to adapt quickly.

Spanish football analyst Guillem Balague has given his verdict on Aston Villa's signing of Adama Traore from Barcelona and he feels there are plenty of positives for the Premier League outfit.

Indeed, according to Balague, the 19-year-old is a fast and powerful player that should adapt quickly.

The Sky Sports pundit also praised his creativity as an 'assistant' and feels he can thrive at Villa should he have a clever no.9 in front of him - although that naturally raises the question of whether he can produce if the striker is having an off day.

The Aston Villa signing has generally been welcomed and well received by supporters but Tim Sherwood will have to show strong man management this season should he keep all of his recruits happy.

Villa have strengthened considerably this summer but have signed a number of forward players who will be competing for similar positions.

Sherwood's men will host Manchester United at Villa Park on Friday night and a positive result against Louis van Gaal's men should provide a solid confidence booster following last weekend's 1-0 win at Bournemouth.
