From Cordoba's official Twitter.

@cordobacfsad: El Córdoba CF y el Aston Villa FC han llegado a un acuerdo para traspasar a José Ángel Crespo al equipo inglés.

@cordobacfsad: El defensa, tras el principio de acuerdo entre clubes, se desplaza hoy a Inglaterra para pasar el reconocimiento médico previo al fichaje.


I don't speak Spanish but doesn't look too difficult to work out. Deal done, just waiting on medical?

Right back, who can cover at left back. And according to a quick google search, was once punched by Christiano a Ronaldo.

cordobacfsad : The defense, after the tentative agreement between clubs , travels today to England for medical examination prior to signing

 

No nothing about him, but interesting how quietly we've gone about this. Absolutely nothing heard then medical. Double player presentation today / tomorrow?

According to good old Wikipedia we were interested in him back in 2008. Doesn't look like he's ever held on to a first team spot very regularly, at 28 years old it seems a strange signing. Will be interesting to see what happens with this one.

He is supposedly in a contract dispute with Cordoba after they took up the option to buy on his loan deal from Bologna, the inclusion of which he then claimed he was not aware of (nothing to do with the rumoured 70% pay-cut for dropping a division I'm sure).  

 

We've been linked with him twice before, under MON and again about 4 years ago. Looks like we spotted an opportunity to nab a man long on our radar and Cordoba recognised an opportunity to avoid a drawn out contract saga.

 

Don't know anything about him as a player, I hope he was a shining light in that Cordoba team because I'm pretty sure they finished rock bottom with the most goals conceded last season.
