Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of Brentford striker Scott Hogan on a four-and-a-half-year deal.
Sky sources understand the fee for the 24-year-old is £9m - potentially rising to £12m. Hogan scored 14 goals for Brentford in the Championship this season.
"I'm delighted to be at a club like Aston Villa," said Hogan. "With its history and tradition, I can't wait to start working hard and helping the team.
"It all happened quite quickly and now I'm looking forward to meeting my new team-mates tomorrow and beginning a new chapter in my career."
Villa emerged as favourites for Hogan's signature early on Deadline Day when it became clear West Ham's interest in the striker was over.
