Young Nigerian joins Aston Villa

Caleb Chukwuemeka has penned a three-year deal with premier league side Aston Villa for an initial fee of around £300,000 with add-ons.

The 19-year-old signed from League Two side Northampton to reunite with his brother Carney Chukwuemeka who broke into the Villa first team last season and has been tipped for more game time with the team following the departure of Jack Grealish to Manchester City.

Caleb who snubbed the interest of Tottenham Hotspurs and Rangers FC completed his medical at Aston Villa over the weekend before putting pen to paper on a three-day.

Chukwuemeka made 28 first-team appearances for Northampton, four of which were starts, scoring twice for the club. He is eligible to play for both Nigeria and England.
