Pierluigi Gollini only signed for Aston Villa on Friday but he has already joined up with his new teammates at the squad's training camp in Austria.

Gollini signed a four-year deal at Villa Park after arriving in a £4 million deal following an impressive individual campaign for relegated Serie A side Hellas Verona last term.

The 21-year-old explained prior to the official confirmation of his move that he chose to move to Villa because of the size of the club and the desire of manager Roberto Di Matteo to bring him to the Birmingham.

Now, he has already begun training with his new teammates as they get their training camp in Austria underway ahead of the challenge of the Championship season ahead.

As it stands, Gollini will be battling Brad Guzan, Mark Bunn, and Jed Steer for the number one spot at Villa next season, but Villa fans on Twitter called for Guzan to be offloaded after the new signing's arrival.

He may have impressed last term in his native Italy, but Gollini is still a relatively inexperienced goalkeeper, having made just 28 league starts for Verona in his short career to date.

It remains to be seen how he will cope with the challenge of adapting to life in England, and the pressure of playing for the relegated side.
