Aston Villa seal loan deal for Anwar El Ghazi
Villa have signed winger Anwar El Ghazi on a season-long loan from French club Lille.
It is understood the deal for Netherlands international El Ghazi includes an option to buy.
The 23-year-old, a client of super agent Jorge Mendes, began his senior career at Ajax, before moving to France in January last year.
He was linked with a move to Italian giants AC Milan this past winter.
El Ghazi said: “I am thrilled to join a football club of the size of Aston Villa.
“I visited Villa Park late last night after flying in from Holland and it gave me goosebumps.
“I can’t wait to get out there and experience it for real and play in front of such passionate fans.”
