El Ghazi spent the 2018-19 campaign on loan with Villa – scoring six times and contributing six assists in 36 appearances in all competitions for Dean Smith’s side.
The 24-year-old was outstanding in the Championship playoff final against Derby County, meanwhile, causing the Rams all sorts of problems in an attacking area.
Villa have now signed the Dutchman on a permanent deal and he will be desperate to prove his worth in the Premier League next season.
As expected, the club’s supporters took to social media after learning the transfer news and their reaction will not come as a surprise.
