Fabian Delph has spoken for the first time on the official site since his 'undisclosed' fee transfer from Leeds.
Speaking tonight Delph revealed that moving to Villa was an opportunity he couldn't resist given Martin O'Neill's desire and belief in young English talent, and his success in getting that talent recognised by Fabio Capello.
The 19 year old is also relishing the opportunity of turning out in the Premier League and making himself a household name.
'I'm absolutely delighted. It's a big step up but I'm looking forward to it and hopefully I can do well.
'I've managed to get the move here and I'm going to work my hardest and hopefully the gaffer will give me the opportunity to play.
'There are a lot of young English players here, an absolutely superb manager and this is the club I've chose to play for so hopefully I can do well.'
Sounds like he has his feet firmly on the floor and should fit right in if he can live up to his hype and potential.
Aston Villa have six players away with their countries in the October international window.
Midfielder Jordan Veretout hasn't just had to adjust to life in a new country, at a new club and with a new language, there was also the small matter...
Err. The Vital Villa man of the match v Stoke City...
Manager Tim Sherwood has given his normal Monday briefing, and goalkeeper Brad Guzan has also given his thoughts as frustration reigns.
