TRAORE, 25, returns to the Premier League following three seasons in France. The Burkina Faso international spent three years at Chelsea and joins up with former team-mate John Terry, who is now assistant coach at Villa Park.
“We’re delighted that Bertrand has chosen to come to Villa,” Villa manager Dean Smith said.
“He’s a player with immense talent who will really enhance our attacking options.”
Villa’s spending so far this summer could amount to £83m and while manager Dean Smith remains on the look-out for reinforcements the deal for Traore is likely to represent the end of the major deals in this window unless an unforeseen opportunity presents itself.
