Amavi joins new signings Adil Rami, Florian Thauvin, Valere Germain, Luiz Gustavo, Steve Mandanda and Clinton N'Jie at Stade Velodrome.

Amavi had been poised to sign for Sevilla last month, but they pulled out of the transfer after the defender's medical at the club.

France Under-21 international Amavi was expected to complete a move to the LaLiga side worth £8 million (A$13.2 million) before the deal fell apart, much to the ire of Villa owner Tony Xia.
