Aston Villa have completed the signing of winger Robert Snodgrass from West Ham United on a season-long loan.

Snodgrass, 29, previously played under Villa boss Steve Bruce at Hull City.

Hull sold the Scotland international to West Ham for £10m in January but he fell out of favour at the London Stadium and has not played this season.

"I am delighted to join. I have had offers from other clubs but it was an easy decision to come here," he told Villa's website.external-link

"You see the name Aston Villa with all its history, tradition, fan base and it's a place you want to come to.

"Seeing it in the Championship doesn't look right. I want to be part of that journey back up to the Premier League. I am raring to go."

Snodgrass, capped 24 times by his country, began his career with Livingston and had spells at Leeds United and Norwich City before joining Hull in 2014.
