Aston Villa complete the £30m signing of Leon Bailey from Bayer Leverkusen


Aston Villa have completed the signing of Jamaica forward Leon Bailey from Bayer Leverkusen on a four-year deal.


Villa announced an agreement for the transfer had been reached with the Bundesliga side on Saturday, before the deal was sealed.


Bailey had been offered to Premier League clubs this summer following Leverkusen’s failure to qualify for the Champions League.


‘It is a great club with a big history,’ Bailey told the club’s official website. ‘I think it is the next step for me and I am excited to get started. 


‘I am always putting on a great show for the fans, it has been a great time for me in Germany, I am excited to get started for Aston Villa.’ 


“Leon is a hugely exciting young striker with great pace and creativity,” said Villa head coach Dean Smith.


“He has enjoyed a successful career at Leverkusen and we are now looking forward to watching him show his skills and talents for Aston Villa in the Premier League.”


Bailey becomes Villa’s third signing of the summer after the arrival of Emiliano Buendia from Norwich City and Ashley Young from Inter Milan.


The announcement of Bailey’s arrival follows the news that Villa are set to accept Manchester City’s £100m bid for captain Jack Grealish.
