Aston Villa have completed the signing of exciting young Barcelona winger Adama Traore for a reported £7m, the BBC report.
The 19-year-old has spent the majority of his time with the Barcelona B team, but started to make some small headway into the senior side last season.
“He’s dynamic, very quick and a maverick-type player – you never know what he’s going to do next and I mean that as a compliment,” Villa manager Tim Sherwood told BBC WM 95.6.
“He’s a huge asset for this club. He can hurt the opposition and I’m delighted to bring him here.”
Capped a several youth levels for Spain, Sherwood went on to highlight how pleased he is to welcome the winger to Villa Park.
“He comes from a very good academy with Barcelona and I’ve known him a long time,” said Sherwood.
“He makes his mind up when he gets the ball and those players are rare – there aren’t many players in the Premier League that can do that.
“We’re getting him at the midway part of his development, he’s not the finished article by a long way but he can certainly help us out in the short-term and in the future.”
