Ireland's Conor Hourihane has completed his move to Aston Villa from Barnsley in a deal worth a reported £3m.

The 25-year-old was out of contract in the summer and a string of outstanding performances in the Championship this term has accelerated his departure, with interested parties prepared to pay a fee to get him six months early.

Villa boss Steve Bruce is an admirer of the Corkman after working together at Sunderland in 2009/10 and he joins the Birmingham club on a three-and-a-half year contract.

Barnsley released a video in tribute of Hourihane after he completed his move to Villa Park. Watch below:
