Aston Villa reportedly sanction the transfer of 24-year-old

Jordan Veretout has completed a move from Aston Villa to Fiorentina, according to reports.

The 24-year-old Veretout had been linked with a move away from Villa all summer and will now finally link up with former Villa team-mate Carlos Sanchez at the Italian club.

The French international Veretout joined the Villains two years ago and struggled for form during his first season in England which also saw Villa being relegated from the Premier League.

He spent last season on loan with Saint-Etienne in France and had hoped to make a move to France permanently this summer, however it appears that over recent days, he has decided that his future lay in Italy.

Villa are expected to offload a number of players this summer as they look to rebuild ahead of next season.

The likes of Tommy Elphick, Gary Gardner, Jordan Amavi, Aaron Tshibola and Ross McCormack are all expected to depart the club before the start of the new season.
