Aston Villa sign Ryan Bertrand on loan

Paul Lambert has completed the loan signing of Ryan Bertrand for the remainder of the season from Chelsea as part of his bid to haul Aston Villa away from the relegation zone.

Villa boss Lambert has been in negotiations with the Blues for several days regarding the left-back and is delighted Jose Mourinho has allowed the 24-year-old to move to Villa Park.

Despite failing to hold down a regular place at Stamford Bridge, Bertrand has big-match experience at the highest level, including the 2012 Champions League final victory over Bayern Munich, and Lambert feels this will help his side climb away from trouble.

Bertrand is Villa’s second loan signing this week, following the arrival of Grant Holt from Wigan Athletic, and he will go straight into the squad for the trip to Liverpool on Saturday.

“Ryan brings a lot of big-game experience, not only in the Premier League but also a Champions League final which Chelsea won, so he’ll be really good for us,” Lambert told Villa’s official website.

"The way he plays the game and as the humble person he is too, he’ll fit in here great and it will be good for him also to be playing games. He has real enthusiasm for the game and he’s looking forward to playing here.

"We’re grateful to Chelsea for allowing him to come here on loan and we know he’ll be really good to work with.”

Bertrand was expected to break through at Chelsea this season, but this is the latest loan move of a career which has included spells at Bournemouth, Oldham Athletic, Norwich City, Reading and Nottingham Forest.

With his vast experience of temporary moves away from Chelsea, Bertrand is confident he can hit the ground running and make an impact.

"I’ve had to adjust many times in my career having played under several managers, so I know I can settle in here quickly and I’m looking forward to being able to contribute to the team,” he said.

"It’s a fantastic opportunity for me to come here. Aston Villa is a fantastic club. To get this chance to come here and play some games will be a really good step for me.

"I’m focused on continuing to progress and helping the team here to do that too. We have a lot of young, talented players here with some experienced heads as well, they want to express themselves and I hope I can add to that and add my experience in a productive way."
