Reece Caira has left Aston Villa to sign for Aussie club Western Wanderers.

Caira, who can play across the back four or in a holding midfield role is one of twelve official signings as the Wanderers get ready for life in the Australian top flight.

The 19-year-old defender caught the eye of manager Tony Popovic during a recent trip to England and has been on trial with the Wanderers since, ending a three and a half year stint with the Villa youth set-up.
