Aston Villa have announced the signing of Micah Richards following his release from City earlier this month. He officially joins the club on July 1st, signing a four-year contract. He's expected to earn around £65k per week, which would place him amongst the top earners at Villa Park.

He will mostly be used again at right-back for Villa but rumors have it that he may see some time at center-back as well, which is something that did not happen often for Richards in his time at City.

We wish him well at Villa and of course will miss that joker being around the cameras.
