✍️ SIGNING: Scunthorpe United is delighted to have completed the signing of Aston Villa defender Jacob Bedeau on a free transfer - https://t.co/lt1MSTOYaJ— Scunthorpe United FC (@SUFCOfficial) January 31, 2019

The move, announced in the past hour, means that Villa will lose out on the signing, who joined a couple of years ago in a £1 million move from Bury, where he was playing first-team football.
Bedeau who failed to make a single appearance for Villa’s first-team will likely fight for a first-team position at Scunthorpe. Unlike the other youth prospects who have exited Villa today, Bedeau leaves the club on a permanent basis.
Bedeau has clear talent, and his time at Villa shouldn’t be looked upon as a failure on him - but it does represent a somewhat confusing piece of business for Villa, who may have been better off ignoring Bedeau entirely instead of spending money on signing him.
In a tweet, Jacob took his time to thank Aston Villa, and will now look forward to the start of a new journey. We wish you all the best Jacob!
