Aston Villa have taken England midfielder Tom Cleverley on a season-long loan from Manchester United, completing the deal a day after the closing of the summer transfer window.

Villa had to wait until the Premier League confirmed that they had received the paperwork for the signing before Monday's transfer deadline.

Villa announced Cleverley's arrival on their Twitter account on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old Cleverley joined fellow England international Danny Welbeck in leaving Old Trafford after seeing his prospects of game time reduced following the club's summer spending spree.

Midfielders Daley Blind, Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria have been signed by new manager Louis van Gaal. Welbeck moved to Arsenal.
