Aston Villa bring in Anwar El Ghazi on loan deal

Championship side Aston Villa have strengthened their side as they limber up for another promotion push by signing midfielder Anwar El Ghazi on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The Dutch winger becomes the fifth player to arrive through the doors at Villa Park since the club were taken over last month.

El Ghazi, who can also play at left-back and central defense, has picked up two international caps for the Netherlands.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Aston Villa’s new signing said, “I am thrilled to join a football club of the size of Aston Villa.

“I visited Villa Park late last night after flying in from Holland and it gave me goosebumps.

“I can’t wait to get out there and experience it for real and play in front of such passionate fans.”
