Youri Tielemans Joins Aston Villa on Free Transfer as Leicester City Rebuilds After Relegation

Youri Tielemans was officially unveiled at Aston Villa on Saturday.

As announced by the Premier League club from Birmingham, the 26-year-old Belgian has been given a contract until 2026.

Tielemans suffered relegation from the Premier League with his club Leicester City last season. Now he joins the “Villans” on a free transfer.

The central midfielder joined England from AS Monaco in 2019. With a transfer fee of 45 million euros, he is still the most expensive newcomer in Leicester City’s history.

Relegated Leicester strikes back on the transfer market

Leicester City had to let some stars go after relegation. James Maddison, among others, recently switched to Tottenham for 46.3 million euros.

However, the “Foxes” plan not to stay too long in the championship. On Saturday, Leicester will sign two newcomers in Conor Coady (Wolverhampton) and Harry Winks (Tottenham).

Coady, who has ten caps for England, is set to become the Foxes’ new chief of defense next season. The 30-year-old centre-back costs €8.7m and will sign until 2026.

Winks is moving from Tottenham to Leicester for €11.6m, including a contract until 2026. The central midfielder, who was last loaned to Sampdoria Genoa, also has ten caps for England under his belt.
