Genk forward Stephen Odey has congratulated his former teammate Mbwana Samatta after joining Premier League side Aston Villa.

The Tanzania international completed his move to the Claret and Blue Army on Monday from the Belgian outfit after signing a four-and-a-half-year deal.

Following the successful switch, the Super Eagles striker has taken to social media to wish the 27-year-old well in England.

“Congratulations Samatta! I wish you all the best in England. I will surely miss you,” the former NPFL star tweeted.

Odey, who has been restricted to nine appearances across all competitions this season, will hope to enjoy more playing time in the absence of the Tanzania star.
