​Sherwood delighted as Villa complete Veretout transfer

Aston Villa have signed French midfielder Jordan Veretout on a five-year deal for an undisclosed fee from Ligue 1 side Nantes.

"I'm really pleased Jordan decided to choose Aston Villa over the other options he had and opt to continue his development with us," said Villa boss Tim Sherwood of a player who had been linked with Liverpool, Tottenham and Leicester.

"He is only 22-years-old but he is vastly experienced for someone that age. He has played over 140 games in Ligue 1 and is a really exciting young player.

"I know he is very highly rated over in France so we are delighted to get this deal over the line."
