Aston Villa manager Smith excited after signing Buendia from Norwich

Aston Villa coach Dean Smith is excited about the arrival of Emi Buendia.

The Argentine attacker has arrived from Norwich City in a deal worth £30m plus add-ons.

He will link up with Jack Grealish in the Villa midfield, a prospect which is exciting Smith.

Head coach Smith said on the Villa website: "Emiliano is equally capable as a wide attacker or as a number 10 and is a great addition to our attacking options.

"We are delighted to have made such an exciting signing so early in the summer and look forward to Emi joining up with us for a full pre-season."
