The 29-year-old arrives for a nominal, undisclosed fee on a two-year deal with the option of a third.
Richardson also revealed that he almost joined the club 15 years ago as a trainee before he left to join Manchester United instead, where he went on to be a part of the club to collect his only Premier League title.
“Villa Park itself has always been my favourite stadium out of all of the stadiums in which I’ve played in the Premier League. It’s got great atmosphere, the fans are magnificent and I’m really looking forward to playing here. I know I’m going to love it,” the former United star said.
Manager Paul Lambert was also delighted to be able to bring the former England international to the club by saying: “Kieran will complement many of the players here well with what he brings.”
“He will add pace, a great deal of experience and he knows the Barclays Premier League. He’s played a lot of games for a lad who has yet to turn 30.
“The grounding he gained at Manchester United has stood him in good stead and he knows what it is to compete in this league and to win things and that’s important. I’m delighted he’s joined us and we’re really looking forward to working with him.”
