Curtis Davies Gobsmacked
Curtis Davies has spoken of his 'delight' at joining Villa.
He told avfc.com:
'Aston Villa is a great club and I'm delighted to be here. I now want to repay the faith shown in me by Martin O'Neill with my performances on the pitch. You look at the squad and it's young and vibrant. We have several England under-21 internationals. Hopefully we can all improve together and be knocking on the door of the full squad. The most important thing, though, is pushing this great club forward, hopefully into the UEFA Cup this season.'
And on his new team mates he says 'The squad is incredibly strong and young which bodes well for the future. It's nice to have familiar faces to talk to rather than being the lad who sits in the corner with no friends.' (Oooh, is he talking about me?!)
He also says he was 'gobsmacked' when he was shown around the Bodymoor Heath training ground.
From what I can gather, Davies hasn't been arrested today or yesterday, so that is a bright start for the lad!
