Aston Villa sign Barcelona youngster Adama Traore

Aston Villa is set to snap up young winger Adama Traore from Barcelona, it has been claimed.

The 19-year-old, more commonly known as Adama, was recently given permission by Barcelona to skip training and head to England to speak to clubs interested in signing him.

With no mention of any transfer fee, Spanish newspaper AS report that the two parties have the option of extending his contract to a fourth year.

Blessed with pace, trickery and strength, Adama Traore will hope to be involved with the Aston Villa first team after playing only 7 minutes for Barcelona in La Liga.

He joined the famous La Masia academy as an 8-year-old but, yet to be promoted from the Barcelona B team, Adama Traore will try and make his name in the Premier League at Aston Villa.

He’ll have great role models to look up to at Villa Park in Charles N’Zogbia, Scott Sinclair and Jack Grealish.
