Quote from:  Peoples Daily
Aston Villa Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of forward Jonathan Kodjia from Bristol City.

The 26-year-old completed his medical at Bodymoor Heath this morning before penning a four-year contract.

Kodjia scored 20 goals in 48 appearances for the Ashton Gate outfit last season and now links up with the Ivory Coast for their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone on Saturday before returning to Bodymoor Heath.

Boss Di Matteo said: “We are really pleased to have secured the services of Jonathan.

“He is a proven goalscorer and hopefully he’ll play an important part in what we hope will be a successful season for the Club.”

I'd never heard of him until a couple of weeks ago but welcome our world class striker.

Maybe Tone meant "international class" when he said "world class"

Good luck to him. We need a loan or two in January for the African Cup!

Pace up front, hallelujah!

Dr X is gonna be hung out to dry on the world class comment but if Kodija bangs in 25 he'll be that to us.

he was either getting a blow job from Moneypenny and was a bit shaken and stirred at the time he texted that, or it was turbulence.

Quoted £14 million for him a few weeks back (which seemed ludicrous then).

Signed for £17 million at the end of the transfer window.  Canny.
