London - Aston Villa have signed defender Jolean Lescott from fellow Premier League side West Bromwich Albion on a two-year contract, their website said on Tuesday.

The England international scored one goal in 36 league appearances for West Brom.

The 33-year-old won the Premier League title with Manchester City in 2012 and 2014, the FA Cup in 2011 and the League Cup in 2014.
