Tottenham fans react as Ollie Watkins joins Aston Villa

As reported by Sky Sports, Aston Villa have signed striker Ollie Watkins, who was linked with Tottenham, in a club record £28m deal from EFL Championship side Brentford.

The 24-year-old had emerged as a potential target for Tottenham Hotspur with the club keen on recruiting a striker as backup for Harry Kane. However, Villa have beaten the North Londoners to the punch, snapping up the Englishman’s signing.

As per the report, Villa shelled out an initial £28m for Watkins which could rise to £33m with add-ons. The 24-year-old has signed a five-year contract with the club.
