Aston Villa’s 13 most expensive signings of all time - where are they now?

As the 2024 January transfer window opens, we take a look at the 13 most expensive signings in Aston Villa history and where they've ended up.

Aston Villa, much like many other Premier League clubs, are no stranger to mega-money transfer deals.

The cash flying out of Villa Park isn't quite at the level of the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal, but big transfers are still fairly frequent.

Moussa Diaby became the new record signing in July 2023 as he joined from Bayer Leverkusen for a fee in the region of £52 million. Pau Torres was expensive, too, as he cost around £33 million from Villarreal.

Those deals - as well as the recent January transfer window - have got us thinking, who are the rest of the most expensive signings in Villa history?

From the least to most expensive, here are the 13 biggest deals Villa have conducted in the Premier League, working out at a total of over £350 million.
