Sky Sports have reported that Dean Smith’s side - who will play in the Premier League next season after clinching promotion from the Championship via the playoffs - will pay Club Brugge an initial transfer fee of £22 million for the 22-year-old forward.
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.
Happy.— Stan Collymore (@StanCollymore) June 13, 2019
Young, skilful, good in tight spaces, eager to get behind defenders, takes defenders on, good strength.
My kind of striker. Hope someone has given @JackGrealish1 a nice long DVD for him to watch to know where and where Wesley makes his runs.
Could be juicy. https://t.co/pIC3SXjpI3
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.
