Aston Villa is snagging another former Blue!
Aston Villa have an agreement on personal terms with Robin Olsen. Sheffield United have not decided yet whether to let him go or not. #AVFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) January 13, 2022
Olsen loan would eventually be terminated - and so he’d join Aston Villa on loan until end of the season. But it’s not full agreed yet.
“I’m really excited. Everton is a big club, I cannot wait to get started. I want to show my quality to my teammates, to the Club and, of course, the fans. I want to put a smile on their faces. I’m ready and willing to work hard for it and for all of us to work together,” says new signing El Ghazi. [EFC]
