Barnsley defender James Bree completed a switch to Aston Villa this morning ending several weeks of speculation.
The right-back has been the subject of interest from the Villains for quite some time and the deal has been done in the best interest of both parties, with Villa getting a highly-rated player and the Tykes getting a decent fee for a product of their youth academy.
The 19-year-old has played 20 games for the South Yorkshire-based club this season and his first season in the Championship has seen him earn lots of plaudits for his solid performances.
Villa boss Steve Bruce has stated his intention to bolster his defensive ranks this month and the signing of such a competent player will no doubt please him.
Following the transfer, Football League World writer Lee Clarke, takes a look at two pros and two cons to Villa singing James Bree.
