Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn has taken to social networking site Twitter to send an emotional message to Hibernian.

McGinn has joined Villa in the Championship in England from Scottish Premiership club Hibernian.

 

The 23-year-old was on the books of Hibs from the summer of 2015 until this summer and was quite successful during his time at the Scottish club.

According to The Times, the Villans paid Hibernian a transfer fee of £2.75 million plus add-ons in order to secure the services of the Scotland international midfielder.

Good signing for Aston Villa?

While many will point out that McGinn does not have any experience of playing in the Championship, there can be no denying that the midfielder is hugely talented and has a lot of potential.

True, it could take the youngster a while to adapt to the Championship and to establish himself in the Villa starting lineup, the Scotland international will prove to be a very good and shrewd signing for the Villans in the long run.
