His move brings to an end a two-year spell at Reading, but prior to that he played for Aston Villa for four years.
Per Transfermarkt, he made 131 appearances during his time at Villa Park.
However, Villa fans have expressed disbelief at this transfer, insisting that the versatile midfielder is a disaster waiting to happen.
Indeed, Bacuna was a key part of the team that finished rock-bottom of the Premier League in the 2015-16 season, playing a total of 31 games in the top-flight.
Are you trying to make sure you get relegated or something??????

Bacuna might be a lot of things – Prem player is certainly NOT 1 of them.
