Villa snap up defender Beye

by Neil Sherwin

Habib Beye has become the latest name to exit relegated Newcastle United, completing a move to Aston Villa on a three year deal.

The 31 year old Senegalese right back becomes the club’s third major summer signing, joining Stewart Downing and Fabian Delph at Villa Park.

“I think Villa is a great football club,” he told AVTV.

“I was really happy when my agent told me Villa were interested. I just said ‘Get it done’. I wanted to sign for this club.

“It’s going to be great working for Martin O’Neill because Villa have a great team. I am so proud now to play here.

“It was important for me to stay in the Barclays Premier League and I am really happy I have with Villa.”
