Barkley, who has 33 international caps, has been at Stamford Bridge for three seasons.
The 26-year-old has played three times for Chelsea this season, scoring once.
“Capturing a player of Ross’s quality is a real coup for our club and I am certain he will thrive here and improve our team,” said Villa manager Dean Smith.
