Welcome to City mate, we'll see you soon.— Moorey (@ItsMoorey) September 14, 2018
Let's GO!! Welcome to Melbourne City @de_laet_r— MARCUS #FIFA19 (@MarcusGomesFIFA) September 14, 2018
We have bagged a good one. Good stuff from City. With bruno firing, a strong and competitive midfield and an impressive defence, the title is ours only to lose.— Jesse (@jessestephens30) September 15, 2018
Our squad is balanced across every line and also versatile enough so that we shouldn't be predictable. It's difficult to pick our best XI on paper, so form should dictate selection. Positive signs.— Domenic Stephen (@domenicstephen) September 15, 2018
Good signing but sad it's a marquee :/— Moorey (@ItsMoorey) September 14, 2018
Who is this bloke, never heard of him???— ☆Ricky☆ (@RickyCusolito) September 14, 2018
De Laet has been on the books of Villa since the summer of 2016 when he joined from Leicester City for a transfer fee reported by The Sun to be worth £2.5 million.
The Belgium defender is a very experienced footballer who won the Premier League title with Leicester City during the 2015-16 campaign.
The former Manchester City defender was able to make just three appearances in the Championship for Villa last season, according to WhoScored.
