Villa Confirm James Collins HAS Signed
Villa have announced the signing of former West Ham defender and Wales international James Collins.
He has signed a four-year-contract.
He told the official site that the last 24 hours has been mad but he is 'delighted' with the move.
Adding, 'Aston Villa is a massive club so, after coming here looking around the place and I'm friendly with a few of the boys as well, it didn't take a lot of persuading on my part. I loved my time at West Ham but I believe I have taken a step forward. I have come to Aston Villa to improve as a player and hopefully improve their team. I'll be looking to do that straight away.'
