Emiliano Buendia set to complete a club-record transfer to Aston Villa today


Aston Villa are set to complete the club-record signing of Emiliano Buendia later today.

According to The Athletic, the Premier League side have agreed a £38 million deal with Norwich City for the Argentine international.

The report further states that the medical has already been completed, and personal terms have been agreed with the player.

Norwich have managed to include a 10% sell-on clause in the player’s contract.

The midfielder was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal, but Villa have beaten them to the 24-year-old’s signing.

He was in exceptional form for Norwich this past season, scoring 15 goals and 17 assists to his name in all competitions.

Dean Smith needed to add more quality in the final third, and Buendia will help share the workload with Jack Grealish.

The England international has been the main source of creativity for the Midlands club over the past few seasons.

Buendia will add technical ability and flair to the side along with goals and assists.

He will be eager to form a quality attacking partnership with Grealish and Ollie Watkins next season.

Some Villa fans took to Twitter to share their reaction to Buendia’s signing – here is what they had to say.
