Stoke City have announced the signing of winger Moha El Ouriachi from Barcelona for an undisclosed fee.
The nineteen-year-old has already represented Spain at youth level and has been called up by Morocco to their Under-23 squad.
He could make his first appearance for the Potters in their Asia Trophy game against Everton in Singapore today.
The Premier League side have not announced the length of El Ouriachi's contract.
Aston Villa have had a nightmare first half in their crucial game against Southampton as they fight to keep their place in the Premier League.
Southampton forward Sadio Mané scored three in less than three minutes, smashing Robbie Fowler's long-held record (4mins 33secs) for the fastest ever hat-trick scored in the Premier League.
Despite Villa dominating possession, Shane Long slotted a fourth and fifth home for the hosts, leaving Tim Sherwood's 11 stunned. There was some consolation with Christian Benteke pulling one back for Villa in injury time.
Aston Villa are currently on 38 points and 14th in the table, closely followed by Leicester in 15th with 37 points.
But just 4 points separate Villa from Hull in 18th - the first relegation spot.
