"Iím very happy to be here," the Colombian international told whufc.com. "Iím very excited and looking forward to achieving lots.

"I decided to come here because, first, it is the Premier League, second, itís a beautiful club and the fans are always helping the club and, third, for me itís an amazing opportunity and an amazing project the club are leading, being ambitious and keen to achieve good things.

"Previously, at Aston Villa, we started very well but sadly it didnít end well, but I always maintained the same desire to return and here I am, with the same mission, with the same desires and dreams.
