Henri Lansbury: Nottingham Forest star officially joins Aston Villa

In official news, Aston Villa have signed midfielder Henri Lansbury from Nottingham Forest.

The 26 year old signed on a four-and-a-half year deal with the reported fee set at over £2.75 million.

As reported by BBC:

“Aston Villa have signed Nottingham Forest captain Henri Lansbury for a fee believed to be in excess of £2.75m.

The 26-year-old midfielder, who was out of contract in the summer, has switched Championship clubs after agreeing a four-and-a-half-year deal.

Forest rejected an offer from Midlands rivals Derby County earlier this month.

Lansbury, signed from Arsenal in 2012, has hit six goals in 19 games this term, including a late equaliser when Forest drew 2-2 at Villa in September.”
