Aston Villa complete club-record £22m Wesley signing after work permit is granted

By Opta
Wesley Moraes has switched Club Brugge for Aston Villa

Birmingham, July 3: Aston Villa have completed the club-record signing of striker Wesley Moraes from Club Brugge for a reported £22million after he was granted a work permit.

Villa had already announced a deal had been agreed with the Belgian side, but they were only able to finally present him at their training base on Tuesday (July 2), the forward having been given clearance to work in England.

Wesley, 22, spent three and a half years in Brugge, becoming a key player over the past two campaigns and scoring 24 league goals in 76 matches.

Said to have cost Villa £22m, Wesley has become the club's most expensive signing, surpassing the £19m they apparently parted with to sign Darren Bent from Sunderland in the 2010-11 season.
