Aston Villa have completed the signing of England international goalkeeper Tom Heaton from Burnley.

The 33-year-old has joined Villa for an undisclosed fee, thought to be between £8m and £9m, and becomes the club's 11th signing of the summer.

"It has been on the cards for a little while and I wasn't sure that it was going to go through, so I'm absolutely delighted to be here," Heaton told Aston Villa's website.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche says Tom Heaton left Burnley on good terms following his signing by Aston Villa.

"Having spoken to the manager, it seems like a fantastic opportunity. It is great that this massive football club is back in the Premier League and I'm delighted to be part of it."

Head coach Dean Smith added: "I am delighted that Tom is joining Aston Villa.

"He's done fantastically well for Burnley over the past few years and his experience and knowledge of the Premier League will be a major asset to us this season."

Heaton joined Burnley from Bristol City in 2013, and went on to make 200 appearances for the club under Sean Dyche.

He was part of Gareth Southgate's most recent England squad, but the last of his three senior international appearances came in a friendly against France in June 2017.

Burnley have entered talks with Leeds for Northern Ireland international Bailey Peacock-Farrell to replace Heaton at Turf Moor.

Leeds value him at £3.5m and will look for a replacement should they agree to sell the goalkeeper.
