Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of Egypt international Mahmoud Hassan, known as Trezeguet, from Kasimpasa.
Trezeguet scored Egypt's opening goal at the Africa Cup of Nations in June, making four appearances as the tournament hosts crashed out in the last 16.
The 24-year-old scored nine goals in Turkey's top flight last season, having netted 13 times in his first season at Kasimpasa following a loan move from Anderlecht.
Villa have paid a reported £8.75million for Trezeguet, who also made three appearances at the World Cup in 2018 and becomes the club's ninth signing of the close season.
We are delighted to confirm the signing of @Trezeguet from Kasimpasa for an undisclosed fee, subject to a work visa and international clearance..

"We're really excited to work with Trez. I've watched him a number of times," Villa head coach Dean Smith told their official website.
"He's the type of wide player that we have been looking for who is direct, causes problems for the opposition in the final third and scores goals."
Dean Smith has been very busy in the summer market, bringing in the likes of Tyrone Mings, Wesley, Matt Targett and Ezri Konza ahead of the club's first season back in the top flight.
Villa won promotion from the Championship via the playoffs last term, beating Derby 2-1 in a Wembley final back in May.
