Premier League club Aston Villa have announced that they have completed the signing of Morgan Sanson after striking an agreement with the player’s former club. The Villans arrived at an agreement with French Ligue 1 outfit Marseille after both clubs agreed at a £14 million fee for the transfer of the player.

Aston Villa manager Dean Smith is a longtime admirer of Sanson and had been monitoring the player since last season. The boss wanted to make a move for the player last summer but eventually moved against the idea after Marseille were demanding a fee that he considered too high.

However, the deal has now come to life and has been completed already, with Sanson becoming the sixth player to be joining Aston Villa under the reign of the club’s sporting director Johan Lange. Dean Smith has revealed that he put his trust in Johan Lange and that he is doing well enough to justify why the club brought him in to handle their transfer businesses in the first place.

The club’s recruitment policy has now been put in place judging by the recent transfer activity that had taken place at the club. Johan Lange was appointed by the club to be their new director in a bid to construct a transfer strategy and recruitment masterplan that would help them bring in players who are capable of spearheading the club to challenging for a top-half finish at the end of the season, and the plan is working out quite well.

The 41-year-old played a part in helping the team escape relegation last term after overseeing a number of key signings at the club, while also having a hand in convincing the club’s star player and captain Jack Grealish into committing his future at the club and signing a new contract. Villa fans will be pleased with his efforts for the team so far and have praised him for a job well done.
