World News – GB – Ross Barkley: Aston Villa signs Chelsea midfielder on loan



Dean Smith: « Capturing a player of Ross’ quality is a huge blow to our club and I am sure he will thrive here and improve our team »

The England international becomes the fifth signing of the Villa showcase, after the arrivals of Ollie Watkins, Bertrand Traoré, Emiliano Martinez and Matty Cash

After securing Barkley’s signing, Villa head coach Dean Smith told the club’s website: « Capturing a player of Ross’s quality is a real blow to our club and I’m sure that he will thrive here and improve our team »

Barkley was part of the Chelsea squad that left the Carabao Cup on penalties at Tottenham on Tuesday night, although he was not taken off the bench by Frank Lampard

He made 31 appearances in all competitions for the Blues last season, but struggled to maintain a regular starting spot amid the competition from Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount and Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Chelsea’s signing of Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen during this window was likely to make it even more difficult for Barkley to secure consistent playing time at Stamford Bridge

Villa has had a strong start to the season, winning all four of their games so far, and Barkley’s arrival will boost a midfielder who already possesses the talents of Jack Grealish, John McGinn and Conor Hourihane

The Midlands side were also interested in the loan of Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek – who has been left out of the last four Blues teams

However, Villa can no longer sign the 24-year-old as Premier League clubs are only allowed to sign one player on loan to each other at any time

The summer transfer window closes at 11 p.m. on Monday 5 October with a feast of activities scheduled on the day of the transfer deadline on Sky Sports News and on our Sky Sports platforms

A domestic markets window for Premier League-EFL deals then runs from October 5 and ends on Friday October 16 at 5 p.m. Follow all news and analysis on SSN and platforms from Sky Sports, including our dedicated blog at the Transfer Center
