And, as to be expected, a number of Villa supporters were quick to react to the club’s official post on the winger on social media.
The 24-year-old cost Villa £28.8m from Bayer Leverkusen and was pictured holding up a Villa top on Thursday.
Who will prove to be Villa's best big-money signing?
Bailey had the number 31 on his training attire and also met Dean Smith, with Villa sharing his first day at Bodymoor Heath.
Bailey also posted pictures of himself in Villa colours on his personal Twitter account on Thursday evening with the caption ‘the wait is finally over’.
Villa fans react
The club shared a picture of Bailey on their official Twitter page with the caption ‘signed, sealed, delivered’.
This is what these Villa supporters had to say in reply, with none describing it as ‘beautiful’.
“oh my god finally”
“Fantastic, welcome to the pride Leon.”
“what a beautiful tweet”
“Love to see it”
