17 hours after the transfer window closes, Aston Villa confirm Cleverley signing

The midfielder has joined on a season-long loan from Manchester United.

ASTON VILLA HAVE announced the signing of midfielder Tom Cleverley on a season-long loan.

The 25-year-old England international joins after the arrivals of Ander Herrera and Angel di Maria saw him fall down the pecking order at Manchester United.

A deal was agreed by the clubs before the transfer window shut last night but Villa had to seek Premier League approval to complete the move today.

Everton were also interested in Cleverley’s services but he will spend the campaign at the Birmingham outfit.
