Having made the move out to Stoke City on loan in January for game time in the second half of the campaign, late yesterday evening Aston Villa confirmed that former skipper James Chester had now completed a permanent switch to the Bet365 Stadium.

With 126 appearances to his name in our shirt, Chezzie became a firm fan favourite with his performances, especially as he played through the pain barrier in the first half of our promotion winning season and put himself in the position of now having to ‘manage’ his knee for the remainder of his career.

We may not have known it at the time but his last Villa Park appearance was against Liverpool in December, with his final outing coming against Fulham in the FA Cup.

There can’t be many who don’t wish him the very best of luck and he’s a face that will always be welcome back judging by the messages fans and other players have sent him on social media.
