According to Sky Sports, Wesley scored 17 goals for Club Brugge this past season.

Former Villa striker Collymore has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to the signing of Wesley by the Villans, and he seems to be happy with the transfer.

Good signing for Aston Villa?

Wesley had a good record in Belgium, and the 22-year-old is very talented and promising, and the forward can only improve and develop in the coming years.

With a good pre-season behind him, the forward could hit the ground running for Villa in the Premier League, especially if he develops a strong understanding with attacking midfielder Jack Grealish.
