The club revealed on their official website that Tshibola put pen to paper on Sunday morning and has now flown out to Austria to join his new teammates for pre-season training.

The midfielder was pictured being put through his paces in Austria as he looks to impress new boss Roberto Di Matteo and first team coach Steve Clarke, who gave him his debut at Reading as a youngster.

The official Villa Twitter account welcomed the dynamic midfielder to the club as he began pre-season training.

The 21-year-old is seen smiling with the clubs academy graduate Jack Grealish, both will play a major part in helping the club back to the Premier League after relegation last term.

Grealish was also pictured smiling in the morning sunshine as he looks to put a disappointing 2015-16 campaign behind where he netted on just one occasion.

Villa forward Jordan Ayew scored seven goals for the club last term and impressed supporters with his attacking style of play.

The Ghana international has been a transfer target for Turkish giants Fenerbache, as reported by Football Insider, but the forward was putting in the hard yards as he prepares to get back to full fitness.
