Aston Villa have completed the signing of Jamaica forward Leon Bailey from Bayer Leverkusen for a reported fee of around £30million.

Bailey, who celebrates his 24th birthday next week, has passed his medical and agreed personal terms on a deal running to 2025.

Villa boss Dean Smith is looking forward to working with his new recruit.

And the 10-cap international is now relishing the challenge of showing what he can do in the Premier League.

"For me, it's a great club with a big history and it's the right step for me. I'm excited to get started," he said on the club's website.

"It's always been somewhere that I've wanted to play. I feel like now is the right time and I'm excited about it.

“I'm a flair type of person, I like to entertain the fans, do my tricks, use my speed and make life difficult for defenders.”

"Hopefully I can do what I do best and have a great season in the Premier League."

He continued: "I like to give assists and I like to score, that's always been me. I like to score and be the one who gives the pass in a decisive moment and not be selfish.

"I'm not always thinking about scoring, I'm more so thinking about the team. Whichever situation we're in, I try to adapt to it and better the team.

"I'm a flair type of person, I like to entertain the fans, do my tricks, use my speed and make life difficult for defenders."
