Boubacar Kamara has signed a five-year contract with Aston Villa.

After his contract with Marseille expires, the holding midfielder will leave the French club.

The 22-year-old has recently been called up to the France national team;

"I knew Aston Villa was for me when I met with Steven [Gerrard] in my home," Kamara added. After helping Marseille qualify for the Champions League by finishing second in Ligue 1, the 22-year-old will join Villa Park.

Kamara stated, " "I knew Aston Villa was for me after meeting with Steven [Gerrard], Christian [Purslow, chief executive], and Johan [Lange, sporting director] in my home.

Their ambition and drive to succeed are similar to me.

I'm looking forward to the start of preseason."

"I am thrilled that we have been able to sign one of the most promising young talents in European football," Villa manager Steven Gerrard said.

"We have a very clear plan to strengthen our team, and Bouba is a big part of that." Kamara guided Marseille reach second place in Ligue 1 and to the Europa Conference League semi-finals, where they were defeated by Feyenoord.

Kamara rose through Marseille's youth system to make over 100 first-team appearances.

After the permanent acquisition of Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona, he becomes Villa's second summer signing.
