Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of central defender Kortney Hause from Wolves.

The club have revealed that Hause has made his loan move permanent, following five months at the club.

Hause joined Aston Villa on loan from Wolves in the January transfer window and made 12 Championship appearances for the club in the second half of the season.

Villa secured promotion to the Premier League as they beat Derby County 2-1 in the play-off final at Wembley earlier this month.

Although he was initially on the bench for the play-off final, Hause came on for the final 10 minutes of the game after Tyrone Mings was forced to come off due to injury.

Hause becomes Villa’s third signing since they secured promotion after the club confirmed the arrival of Spanish winger Jota from Birmingham and striker Wesley from Club Brugge.
