Villa have pulled off a master-stroke with Adama Traore signing

The former Barcelona youngster should take England by storm following his £7m move to Aston Villa.

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood has brought some wonderful players to the club this summer, but the most exciting is undoubtedly 19-year-old winger Adama Traore.

The Spaniard signed for Villa for an initial fee of £7million (as reported by the BBC) and those who keep a close eye on La Liga will know just what a coup that is for Sherwood.

Traore may be young but he possesses innate talent that should make him a Villa legend in time. After all, his pace, power and dribbling ability make him a nightmare for opposing defenders and he has the confidence the best footballers need to reach the very top of the game.

When you consider the inflated fees paid for some players this summer, £7million for Traore is nothing short of a master-stroke from Villa.

The fact that Barcelona let him go permanently was a surprise in itself considering his talent, but Villa and their fans will not be complaining and it is telling that the player opted to play under a manager who is developing a habit of getting the best out of young prospects.

The likes of Jordan Amavi, Jordan Veretout and Rudy Gestede will all prove to be brilliant signings for Villa, but the best of the bunch is a teenager with the world at his feet.

He really is a joy to behold, and if he develops as expected, Traore could lead this exciting Villa side to great heights under their equally exciting boss.
