Dutch Starlet Signed By Villa UPDATED

Dutch Starlet Signed By Villa UPDATED

Skysports.com have a report claiming that Villa have signed Dutch starlet Arsenio Halfhuid from Excelsior.

They got the Mathew Upson report wrong earlier but I must admit are usually fairly accurate, although I never truly believe signings until a) they are announced on the official site b) on the shirt in pitch, no hang on, on the pitch in the shirt c) no, point b was the last point I had to make.

The 17-year-old defender has signed on a three year deal for an undisclosed fee and will join the youth set up.

His agent, Dan Fletcher told Sky Sports News:

'Arsenio's thrilled to be at such a great club, it's all happened so quickly for him, but that's the way football is sometimes. He's signed a two-and-a-half-year deal at Villa. A lot of Dutch clubs are wondering how they've missed Arsenio. Credit to Aston Villa for keeping their interest in him quiet and making their move so quickly.'

Now confirmed on the official site so done deal!

Is he half-druid or half-huid? Either way welcome to the temple of VP!
