Maloney Happy With Villa Move
Shaun Maloney has spoken about his move to the Premiership and says he doesn't regret coming to Villa Park despite the fact he could have been playing in the Champions League with Celtic.
'It was a very big decision for me. And, no, it wasn't one I took lightly. But when the manager of this club spoke to me, I realised it was a massive challenge. This is a big club I am coming to. The level of performance I will have to put in to get into the side is something that excited me. I am happy with my decision.'
'When Aston Villa came in, I was just delighted the move came off before the transfer window deadline. Martin O'Neill was a big, big part of the decision. And Aston Villa, being a big club, was also a part.'
Adding on the official site: 'Obviously, knowing the staff from my time at Celtic, I knew exactly what I was coming into. I enjoyed my time at Celtic when he was there and after he left.'
