Rogers joins Aston Villa from Middlesbrough

Aston Villa have completed the signing of winger Morgan Rogers from Middlesbrough on a long-term deal.

Rogers underwent a Villa medical on Wednesday and is understood to have joined for an initial £8m fee, which could eventually be worth £16m if all add-ons are met.

The deal marks a significant profit for Middlesbrough in just six months after they signed Rogers for £1m from Manchester City last summer. City will take a portion of the transfer fee for Rogers via a 25 per cent sell-on clause.

Boro's recruitment is led by head of football Kieran Scott and chief executive Neil Bausor.
