Ezri Konsa: Aston Villa close to signing Brentford defender

Ezri Konsa: Aston Villa close to signing Brentford defender”

And now, Dean Smith's side are keen on bringing back another player who was impressive on loan a year ago - Manchester United's young central defender, Axel Tuanzebe.

Tuanzebe helped Villa to promotion back to the Premier League via the Championship play-offs.

Speaking to Villa's official website of the U20 World Cup victor, Smith said: "Ezri fits the profile of the type of player we were searching for".

Alongside the announcement of Mings, Villa revealed their new home kit for the 2019/20 season, which sees them return to the Premier League for the first time since 2016.

The defender joined Brentford from Charlton Athletic in the summer of 2018, costing the Bees an estimated fee of £2.5m.

Anwar El Ghazi, Kortney Hause and Tyrone Mings have all signed permanent deals, while Jota, Wesley Moraes and Matt Targett have also joined the Midlands side.

Konsa told Club TV: "I am over the moon".

Turkish outlet Takvim claim Aston Villa have persuaded Kasimpasa to sell winger Trezeguet after the Midlands club tabled an offer worth £9.9million for the Egyptian attacker. "I can't wait to meet the lads now and get started".

"I'm speechless right now". It's a dream come true.

The player has previously been linked with a move to the Premier League but after a poor Wold Cup last summer these reports went quiet.

"For it to come true now is a fantastic feeling for me and my family".

"It's a challenge that I look forward to very much". I'm looking forward to working with Dean and Richard again. We had a really good relationship there.
