Aston Villa sign experienced Sweden international on a permanent deal1 min read
Aston Villa have announced the permanent signing of goalkeeper Robin Olsen from Roma for an undisclosed fee.
Olsen spent the second half of the 2021-22 season on loan at Villa Park, making just one appearance, the 3-2 defeat on the final day at Manchester City.
The Sweden international joined Roma from FC Copenhagen in 2018 as the replacement for Alisson, who left for Liverpool, though he was unable to properly establish himself at the Giallorossi, also being loaned out to Cagliari, Everton and Sheffield United.
He becomes the latest signing for Steven Gerrard’s Villa, who have also agreed deals to add Boubacar Kamara from Marseille and Diego Carlos from Sevilla in recent weeks, as well as making Philippe Coutinho’s loan move from Barcelona permanent.
