Antonio Luna joins on a three-year deal.
Aston Villa continue their busy transfer window by signing their fifth player since the season finished, with Sevilla’s Antonio Luna joining on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
The 22-year-old right-back joins Aleksander Tonev, Jores Okore, Leandro Bacuna and Nicklas Helenius as a new signing at Villa Park.
“I’ve always believed that I could play in the Premier League,” Luna was quoted by the BBC.
“To have this opportunity with a club as historic and huge as Aston Villa and with a manager who is building a squad of young players with great prospects is tremendously exciting.
“The quality of football in La Liga is also respected everywhere and this is why I believe I can do well in the Premier League.”
The defender is a product of the youth system at Sevilla, although spent 2012/13 on-loan at Mallorca making 11 appearances.
Luna has also been loaned to Almeria since breaking into the Sevilla first team in 2010 and has made 27 appearances for his boyhood club in three years.
None of Villa manager Paul Lambert’s five new acquisitions in the close seasons are older than 23, which further points towards the Scot’s trust in youth at the Birmingham side.
Lambert’s first season in charge at the Villans was a turbulent one with the side battling against relegation for much of the season.
However, with the boss already axing unwanted veterans Jean II Makoun and Richard Dunne from his squad and the expected departure of expensive striker Darren Bent, the former Norwich man is beginning to stamp his own mark on the club.
