Aston Villa have signed Boubacar Kamara on a five-year deal, with the midfielder joining on a free transfer when his contract at Marseille expires.

The 22-year-old will transfer to Villa Park after helping Marseille qualify for the Champions League by finishing second in Ligue 1.

Kamara said: “When I met Steven [Gerrard]Christian [Purslow, chief executive] and John [Lange, sporting director] home, I knew Aston Villa was for me. Their ambition and determination to succeed match mine. I can’t wait for the pre-season to start.”

Villa boss Gerrard added: “I am delighted that we have been able to attract one of the most promising young talents in European football.

“We have a very clear plan to strengthen our squad and Bouba is an important part of that.”

As well as helping Marseille to second place in Ligue 1, Kamara helped the club qualify for the semi-finals of the Europa Conference League, where they were beaten by Feyenoord.
