Aston Villa have completed the season-long loan signing of Tom Cleverley, the club have confirmed.

Villa made a u-turn late on Monday to sign the Manchester United midfielder on loan and had to wait until the Premier League confirmed the paperwork had been completed in time.

Villa had initially pulled the plug on a permanent deal for Cleverley earlier on transfer deadline day with the England man's wage demands pricing him out of a move.
