Jordan Amavi (Aston Villa)

Amavi may have just one full season of senior professional football under his belt to date, but his performances throughout the 2014/15 campaign were more than enough to convince Villa that he would represent value for money at £9m. The 21-year-old left-back has joined the Villans from Nice, where he came through the academy and made his debut in 2013. Like many modern full-backs, Amavi loves to bomb forward down the flank and participate in the attacking phase of play, with his pace and energy allowing him to get back to fulfil his defensive responsibilities. Clearly talented but still inexperienced, Sherwood will be hoping Amavi is able to adapt to a new country, league and style of football relatively quickly.
