Colin Calderwood has left Brighton to join Championship rivals Aston Villa as assistant manager to Steve Bruce.

The former Scotland international defender had been working as assistant to Chris Hughton at Brighton since the start of the 2015/16 season.

Calderwood spent a season of his playing career with Aston Villa in 1999/00 and Bruce expressed his delight at attracting a coach of his calibre to the club:

We’ve got an experienced guy and a good football man. It was important for me to get someone of his nous.

When I heard Colin was interested he shot to the top of the pile. We interviewed two or three people.

But once I knew Colin was available there was only one person I wanted here.
