A short time ago tonight, Aston Villa announced the signing of free agent Chris Samba.
Former Blackburn Rovers and Queens Park Rangers defender Samba had been without a club having left Greek side Panathinaikos in January 2017 and he of course joined us for training on a ‘we don’t call it a trial’ basis last season.
Having stuck with us so far this pre season and been involved in our training camp, playing his parts in friendlies against Telford and Walsall, manager Steve Bruce today handed him a 12 month deal.
Speaking to the Official Site after signing the deal this evening.
‘I have enjoyed my time with Aston Villa and I am very pleased to continue this association after signing my contract with the club. I have played against Aston Villa many times and it`s always been a club I have had the utmost respect for because of its standing in the game.’
Samba went on to say.
‘I can`t wait to put the shirt on this coming season. It`s a big season as everyone knows and if I can play my part in making it successful, I will be very happy.’
Welcome to our new 33 year old.
