The 22-year-old winger has signed a four-year contract at Villa Park after undergoing a medical this morning, sealing a return to the side having spent the 2005/06 season on loan at the Midlands outfit. Milner proved a big success during that spell, and came close to penning a permanent deal in August 2006 when Newcastle pulled out of the transfer at the eleventh hour. Villa manager Martin O'Neill has now got his man, however, and Milner could make his debut against Liverpool FC on Sunday. Villa were drawn against PFC Litex Lovech in the UEFA Cup first round earlier today, with the first leg in Bulgaria on 18 September.
