Aston Villa sign Leverkusen’s Moussa Diaby in club-record £51.9m deal | Aston Villa

Aston Villa have completed the signing of the France winger Moussa Diaby from Bayer Leverkusen.

While Villa have not disclosed the fee paid to secure the services of the 24-year-old, it is understood the package is worth up to €60m (£51.9m), a club record.

Villa’s interest in Diaby predates Unai Emery’s arrival as manager last November but the France international was in the youth setup at Paris Saint-Germain while Emery was in charge of the Ligue 1 club. Diaby is thought to have been identified as Emery’s No 1 attacking target this summer.
