Gavin McCann has become the first major exit from Villa Park this summer having spent the last few seasons as a virtual ever present in the team.
The midfielder has wrapped up his move for an undisclosed fee to the Reebok Stadium to join up with former Villa left-back Jlloyd Samuel at Bolton Wanderers.
McCann has signed a three-year deal after undergoing a medical today.
The new Bolton boss Sammy Lee told the Trotters website:
'Gavin McCann is a positive signing for us. Gavin is an experienced campaigner who knows the Barclays Premier League inside out. He has all the attributes you need for the modern game - a good passing range, excellent touch on the ball and optimum energy levels to cope with the rigours of the domestic game and our European campaign.'
Adding: 'I want to bring in quality signings over the summer to add to our already excellent squad, and Gavin has quality in abundance.'
So who now for Villa? Reports are suggesting Villa are being made to wait for a deal bringing in West Ham's Nigel Reo-Coker, but there is no way that will be it for the midfield, if it is I'd be shocked because Villa have to start to build a squad. Fair enough letting fringe and unwanted players go, but we need numbers as Martin O'Neill found out last season when a few injuries kicked in.
Exciting times, we've let a first team regular go, there must be better qualilty arriving!
Good luck Gavin.
