​Aston Villa complete deal for Rangers striker Wilson

Former Rangers wonder kid Rory Wilson has signed for Aston Villa.

The 16-year-old was allowed to move under freedom of contract due to his age.

According to The Sun, Villa have agreed to pay Rangers a paltry fee of £350,000 for the Scotland youth striker.

The two clubs did agree on the fee in a bid to avoid the case going to FIFA.

However, the agreement does state that Villa may have to pay up to £1 million if Wilson plays a lot in the Premier League and becomes a full Scotland international.

Villa boss Steven Gerrard knew Wilson well from his time at Rangers.
