The Adidas Aston Villa football kit deal comes in the aftermath of the complaints from the players in the men's and women's teams about the "wet-look" nature of the Castore shirts, which appeared saturated and clingy once players started perspiring.

The switch to Adidas is a move that reflects the ambitions of the club and its billionaire Egyptian owner Nassef Sawiris, who owns around seven percent of the German company.
