Aston Villa have signed Angel Crespo from the Spanish club Cordoba.

Crespo and his Cordoba teammates were relegated from the Primera Division last season and Villa have taken advantage to bring the versatile defender to Birmingham.

The 28-year old full-back can play on either flank and at 6ft 0” should be able to handle the aerial bombardment that some Premier League sides can employ.

Villa were originally interested in signing Crespo way back in 2008 following a good run of form at his former club Sevilla. Now they’ve finally got their man and as you’ll see from this video he should provide a calming influence at the back.
