Aleksandar Tonev ends failed Aston Villa spell and joins Frosinone

Aston Villa flop Aleksandar Tonev has joined Serie A side Frosinone on a permanent deal.

The Barclays Premier League club confirmed the move on their official Twitter account.

Tonev made just eight starts and only 20 appearances in total for Villa after signing from Lech Poznan in 2013 and failed to score.

He was loaned out to Celtic last season, playing 16 times, and never featured for Villa under boss Tim Sherwood.

In October 2014 he was banned for seven matches after being found guilty of racially abusing Aberdeen's Shay Logan.

The Bulgaria international was signed by ex-manager Paul Lambert but had not played for Villa since April 2014.
