The 22-year-old defender has yet to make his
senior debut for the Reds and will now spend
the 2014-15 season at Villa Park, becoming the
last signing of the club's summer
Aston Villa have completed the season-long
loan signing of London-born Portuguese
defender Tiago Ilori from Liverpool.
Ilori joined the Reds on transfer deadline day in
2013 but has yet to play for the Reds at senior
level, having embarked on loan spells at
Granada and Bordeaux, and made 12 Ligue 1
appearances for the French side in 2014-15.
Villa boss Tim Sherwood has embarked on a
major recruitment drive this summer, signing
the likes of Jordan Ayew, Rudy Gestede, Idrissa
Gueye and Joleon Lescott, and has expressed
his delight at acquiring Ilori.
"I am very pleased to bring Tiago into the
football club," Sherwood told the club's official
"He's someone I have been aware of for some
time and I am looking forward to working with
him. He's a young guy who I believe will
enhance the group here."
