Elmohamady has expressed delight at joining Aston Villa, adding he will do his best to help his new side rejoin the Premier League.

“Aston Villa is a great club and I am thrilled to join – it’s one of the very biggest clubs in England and its history and tradition is there for all to see," the Egyptian winger told the club's official website after the signing.
