Dean Smith believes Bertrand Traore’s arrival is another building block in turning Aston Villa into a high-quality outfit. Traore will make his Villa debut in Thursday’s third-round Carabao Cup tie at Bristol City following his move from Lyon for a reported fee of £17million. The 25-year-old made only four Premier League starts before leaving Chelsea in 2017, but he flourished in France and his addition boosts Villa’s attacking options further after the arrival of club-record signing Ollie Watkins.
The Frenchman joined the Magpies in a £16million switch from Nice.
