Official announcement. Season long loan, no word on any option to buy. It's another body, not totally convinced but let's see how he performs.

Due to his age, Id expect an option to buy on this deal. Rather than a straight loan...Be nice if we can keep him if successful or send home if not.

Good signing for the season. I'm actually surprised this one happened.

If this is the new Villa management in action i'm impressed, not so much for the signing but the way they have gone about it. I was reading the press reports saying that He wanted to stay at Chelsea and fight for his spot then without warning up he pops. Is he the big signing people have been talking about or is there more to come?

Well I know not everybody thinks this is a good move, but I think he adds real quality to the squad and I'm delighted.  We may still be a bit light defensively but this gives us real depth.

Welcome Ross and please be brilliant.

He was on the bench for Chelski last night, but didn't get on. Does anyone know if that means he can play for us in the League Cup, even in time for tomorrow night? (old school name).

Welcome Ross - it's a big season for him to prove that he can deliver what he is capable of - most immediately to earn a place in the England squad for the Euros.

I hope he can a bit more than I expect he will and I will be delighted to be proved wrong.

Im happy with that one
I know others have some concerns which is fair enough but I think he will improve us and add a bit more physically to the team

I'll be honest, I've never been a massive fan and I've never understood why he's rated so highly. It'll be interesting to see how he fits in though, it's an intriguing one. Hope he has a belter of a season.

I think he played in the last round so pretty sure he's cup tied.
