Kortney Hause has finally completed his £3m move from local rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers, following his successful loan spell with us last season.

He becomes our third confirmed signing of the summer after Jota and Anwar El Ghazi, with Wesley Moræs also inbound subject to a work permit and international clearance.

The Sporting Director at Wolves, Kevin Thelwell, had some warm words for Hause following confirmation of his move to Villa Park.

“On behalf of everyone at Wolves I would like to thank Kortney for all of his efforts both on and off the pitch during the past five years. Kortney has been a tremendous servant to this club, providing a solid backbone to our defence in the Championship where he helped lay the foundations for Wolves’ rise to where we are today. We wish Kortney the very best in all his future endeavours.”

The reaction of Villa fans on social media has been largely positive:

Reaction from Wolves fans has been mixed, but by-and-large they wish the young defender well on his move to Villa Park.

Welcome back to Villa park Kortney. You now have the perfect platform to really kick-start your career and we look forward to seeing you in the Claret and Blue for many years to come.
