Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of ex-Lyon boss Remi Garde as it's new manager, the BBC reports.
Remi has agreed a contract that will run until the end of season 2018/19, reports avfc.co.uk.
The signing comes after Villa sacked Tim Sherwood last week after series of poor performances that has put Villa at the bottom of the Premier League table.
Tom Fox, Aston Villa Chief Executive, said, reports Avfc.co.uk: "For the past year we have been working purposefully to transform the Club in order to build a successful organisation that can compete and succeed in the Premier League.
"Finding a manager who shares and believes in our vision and has the ability to bring it to life through performances on the pitch is essential. We are confident that Rémi is the manager who can deliver the best from the current squad and help set the club up for future success".
Rémi Garde said: "It is an unbelievable honour to be the manager of such an illustrious football club.
"I've had extremely positive meetings with both the owner, Randy Lerner, and Chief Executive Tom Fox. They have ambitious plans for the Club and I'm excited that they have turned to me to help them realise them.
"Obviously we have a difficult task in front of us but I'm looking forward to the challenge with the support of everyone who loves Aston Villa."
