Aston Villa have signed former England midfielder Joe Cole on a free transfer after his West Ham contract ran out, Sky Sports confirms.

Villa will be Cole’s fourth Premier League club after previous spells at Chelsea, Liverpool and two at West Ham while he also spent a season at Lille in France. The winger won three Premier League titles at Stamford Bridge even though he was hampered with injury.

Cole, who will turn 33 in November, say he is excited at the prospect of playing for Aston Villa. "I've signed a two-year deal and I am very excited about it, coming to a massive club. I'm very excited about it and can't wait to get going. I spoke to the gaffer and we agree on a lot of things in football and playing in a central midfield role sold it for me.”

Although he is approaching the end of his career, Cole says that he is still learning every day and he is looking forward to working with manager, Paul Lambert. "I'll be coming here and I'll be learning too. Obviously I'll bring my experience to the squad but you still learn every day and I want to learn. I know I'll learn from the manager, I'll learn from other players here and going forward together we want to get the best results for the club.”

The 56 times capped Englishman is Villa’s second signing of the summer after a deal for former Arsenal and Fulham defender Philippe Senderos was confirmed last week.
