Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley has switched to Aston Villa on a season long loan.

Barkley was unveiled today after completing all necessary details including medicals and personal terms agreement.

The 26-year-old English international, who has been capped 33 times by his country, has made 52 appearances for Chelsea in the Premier League and Champions League, since his transfer to Stamford Bridge in January 2018.

“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,” said Villa manager Dean Smith.

With the Blues recent acquisition of players, Barkley’s playing time might be limited.

Safe to say he seek more playing time.
