Aston Villa have announced an agreement to sign Youri Tielemans on a free transfer.

The 26-year-old midfielder will join Villa on 1 July following the expiration of his contract with Leicester City.

Tielemans becomes Villa's first acquisition of the summer transfer window.

He joins them after four-and-a-half-seasons at Leicester in which he featured in 151 Premier League matches, scoring 21 goals and providing 20 assists.

During that time, Tielemans helped the club secure back-to-back fifth-placed finishes in 2019/20 and 2020/21.

Tielemans also played a big part in the Foxes winning the FA Cup, scoring the goal in the final against Chelsea, and the Community Shield.

For Belgium, Tielemans has been capped 58 times, scoring five goals, and helped them finish third in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
