• The 23-year-old signs for a fee believed to be £3m
• Lowton becomes Villa's third signing of the summer
Aston Villa have completed the signing of Sheffield United right-back Matt Lowton for an undisclosed fee. The 23-year-old Lowton has signed a four-year contract which will keep him at Villa until the summer of 2016
The deal is believed to be worth around £3m and Lowton will provide competition for last season's first choice right-back, Alan Hutton, and deputy Eric Lichaj.
Lowton becomes Villa's third signing of the summer following the acquisition of Karim El Ahmadi and Brett Holman.
"It's every boy's childhood dream to play in the Premier League and it was one of mine," Lowton said. "This opportunity is fantastic and I thank the manager for giving it to me. Hopefully I can repay the faith that's he's shown in me and keep going at a higher level.
"Just from driving up to the training ground you can see the difference in the quality of things. The training ground looks spectacular and the pitches look phenomenal. It's a massive club in the Premier League with a big fan base and I'm looking forward to getting to work as soon as I can.
The Aston Villa manager, Paul Lambert, said: "Matthew is a really talented young player who brings a lot of things that can really benefit the club. He's a good player already and he's only young so he has the potential to be a really good player for us.
"He's hungry to succeed and to go further in the game, both of which are attributes that we want at this football club and that we are looking for. We won't put any pressure on him, we just want him to go out and enjoy playing." Read More
