Change of course for the winger of the France team. Moussa Diaby leaves the Bundesliga for England. The player trained at Paris Saint-Germain joined Aston Villa on Sunday 23 July. After four seasons with Bayer Leverkusen, he will evolve under the orders of Unai Emery and will find two other tricolor internationals: Boubacar Kamara and Lucas Digne.

The one who has just celebrated his 24th birthday remains on two full seasons (cumulating 30 goals and 24 assists over this period) and will try to shine in the most prestigious championship in Europe to establish himself more durably with the Blues. The native of Paris has played only 9 of the 26 games played by the France team since his first selection in September 2021, notably missing the World Cup in Qatar.
