Villa Seal Routledge Deal

Villa Seal Routledge Deal

Sky Sports are reporting that 23-year-old winger Wayne Routledge has just signed for Aston Villa for £1.25 million on a 18 month contract.

The former Crystal Palace and Spurs winger passed a medical this afternoon.

More news as we get it.

Good signing, no risk fee, if he is over his injuries he could be a very welcome addition, he can bomb down the right, Ashley Young on the left, supply sorted.

Now lets get another....!

Now confirmed on the official site.

Looks like he has signed according to sky. Now all the villa faithful who were slating him before he had even put on the shirt should keep quiet and back him...

Could turn out to be a great signing. He was class at Palace a couple of years ago, then basically disappeared. Nothing to lose really.

reza Maloney's a striker and left footed or am I wrong?

From what I've seen of Maloney he looks decidedly right-footed.

this could turn out to be a master stroke for that kind of money.

good signing improves the squad, increases our chances of Euro qualification. But not a "brave new world" signing.

Havent seen too much of him since he never really got a go at spurs but he seems to look like a promising player if he can do half as well down the right as young has been doing down the left then we will have two attack minded wingers that would make any wing back shake in their boots.

Who was slating him Gappy? If you read the threads most are happy with the player but not what they were expecting for a club sitting in 5th place.
