The 18-year-old Swiss youngster has signed a two-year deal despite impressing at times in the Midlanders' youth ranks.

"Yes, I have signed for two years," he told Liechtensteiner Vaterland. "For me, it was already clear from the outset that I would go to Vaduz.

"I was not really on trial. It just took a slightly longer time until the contract could be signed."

Bellon joined Villa from St Gallen along with his brother Yago.

"It was a great risk to move to England," he admitted. "We were still very young.

"The competition as a foreigner in a club like Aston Villa is huge. Now, I will be 19 in August and I would like to play.

"Therefore, I am pleased with the move to FC Vaduz."
