Pau Torres to Aston Villa, here we go! Agreement in place ó as revealed today Unai Emery wanted Pau to join this week and itís gonna happen. 🚨🟣🔵 #AVFC

Contract agreed, also medical being scheduled. Villa will pay way less than the release clause.

Big one for Emery & Villa.

Widely enough reported now that this might as well split from the transfer thread.

Not my money, but that sounds reassuring.

Nice one. We're getting the spine of the team reinforced with some great quality players.

Will be great to have two outstanding defenders at right and left CB positions.

This feels big. I'm not sure the last time that we signed a regular starter for on of the leading national sides in his prime (well, maybe Tielemans...?), but this is a step up from the type of signing we have been making. If he isn't world class now, he certainly has the potential to be very soon.

We have four excellent options to play at centre half. Two left footers, two right footers. I'm not sure many teams in the league have better options than us for both central defence and midfield. We're building something special. And we have two crests.

Appears the fee will be in the region of £30m. So our summer window thus far is a starting Spanish and Belgian international in their mid 20s for a total of £30m or so.

Would be a fabulous signing if its announced officially in the near future.

He was one of the players I wanted us to sign because Emery plays out from the back & to have the quality of Torres sat in there would be a great starting point.

Especially when he's passing to the likes of Tielemans, Douglas Luiz, Kamara, etc...
