Aston Villa: Villans to pay £350,000 for Rory Wilson

Aston Villa: Villans to pay £350,000 for Rory Wilson -Aston Villa News

Aston Villa will pay Rangers an initial £350,000 for teenage striker Rory Wilson, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Lowdown: Wilson links

Wilson has been heavily linked with a move to Villa Park over recent months after scoring 49 goals at youth level last season.

Romano has been on top of the story in recent days and claimed last week that Steven Gerrard’s side were set to sign the Scot on July 1.

The 16-year-old has already signed a six-figure boot deal with Adidas, and it looks as if Villa will be writing a six-figure cheque to Rangers for the forward’s services.

The Latest: Romano’s update

Romano took to Twitter on Friday morning to lift the lid on the finances involved in a deal.

The transfer expert revealed that a ‘full agreement’ has been reached between Villa and Rangers that will involve a £350,000 fee – it could rise to £1m with Premier League appearances.

Aston Villa fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Steal

A total of £1m is peanuts in today’s market, and it looks as if Villa have got their hands on a future star in Wilson. He scored for fun at youth level last season and is clearly highly rated for Adidas to snap up his services already, so could lead the line for the U23s next season with a view of breaking into the first-team setup in 2023/24.

Which Villa signing has excited you the most?









Wilson looks set to become the club’s fifth summer arrival and first at academy level, and over time, it could be looked back on as an excellent piece of business similar to Tim Iroegbunam’s move from West Brom last summer.
