DONE DEAL: Aston Villa sign former Manchester United goalkeeper

Aston Villa have completed the signing of former Manchester United goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini.

The Italian moves to the Championship club after Aston Villa agreed a £4.1million (€5m) deal with Serie A club Hellas Verona. He moved back to his native Italy in 2014 after spending two years as part of Manchester United’s academy.

Aston Villa manager Roberto Di Matteo said:

I am very pleased to have brought in Pierluigi.

We have managed to sign him despite the fact he was being chased by a number of top sides and that is a great sign.

He’s a young man but has plenty of experience and I’m sure he’ll prove to be an excellent signing for the Club.

The 21-year old has signed a four-year deal at Villa Park
