Aston Villa sign goalkeeper Matija Sarkic from Anderlecht

Aston Villa have signed goalkeeper Matija Sarkic from Anderlecht on a three-year deal.

Sarkic, 18, joins Brad Guzan, Mark Bunn and Jed Steer as goalkeepers at the club.

The shot-stopper came through the youth system at Belgian club Anderlecht -- which also oversaw the development of Vincent Kompany and Romelu Lukaku -- and has been playing for their under-19 team.

Sarkic played for Montenegro in the Under-17 European Championship in 2013 and is in the under-21 squad for their European Championship qualifier in Moldova on Friday.
