ANKARA

Premier League side Aston Villa signed on Wednesday Ross Barkley on a season-long loan from Chelsea.

Having joined The Blues from Everton in 2018, the 26-year-old midfielder scored 11 goals in 86 games in all competitions for the English club. He also represented England in 33 matches.

Aston Villa’s manager Dean Smith said “capturing a player of Ross’s quality is a real coup for our club, and I am certain he will thrive here and improve our team.”

He may make his Aston Villa debut against Liverpool on Sunday.
