Middlesbrough forward Morgan Rogers has joined Aston Villa.
The 21-year-old, who primarily plays as a winger, is expected to cost £8 million plus add-ons, which might eventually increase to £15 million.
In 33 games this season, Rogers has contributed nine assists and seven goals for Championship team Boro.
Last July, the England Under-20 international signed a four-year contract for £1.5 million to go from Manchester City to Riverside Stadium.
Aston Villa made three proposals, which Middlesbrough rejected before settling on a price for Rogers.
A chunk of the money will go to Manchester City, since they have arranged a 25% sell-on fee from any profits made by Boro.
Manager Unai Emery stated after Villa’s 3-1 home loss to Newcastle on Tuesday: “We are eager and driven to collaborate with [Rogers] and Hopefully, he can make the kind of growth here that we anticipate.”
Despite winning just one of their last four league games, Aston Villa is currently five points off the top of the Premier League standings in fourth place.
They are also through to the Europa Conference League final 16, and they will play Chelsea in the FA Cup fourth-round replay.
Villa acquired defender Kosta Nedeljkovic from Red Star Belgrade earlier in January for an unknown sum.
However, Emery stated on Tuesday that he does not anticipate his team doing any further business before Thursday at 23:00 GMT, which is the winter transfer deadline for Premier League clubs.
