Aston Villa have signed teenage Bury defender Jacob Bedeau on a two-and-a-half-year deal, for a fee understood to be around £900,000 including add-ons.

Bedeau joined the Shakers in summer after being released by League Two side Leyton Orient.

The 17-year-old made his professional debut in November and has since made a further six senior appearances.

"This is such a massive opportunity for me at such a young age," he told Championship club Villa's website.

"I'm looking forward to taking that opportunity and developing even more at such a big club."
