Christian Benteke has welcomed Libor Kozak to Aston Villa.

Kozak, signed from Lazio, made his debut in defeat to Newcastle United.

"I think he will help me a lot and do well for the team as well," said Benteke.

"We can learn from each other. I haven't trained much with him because he went away with his national team.

"But you can see he has good qualities with his finishing and I hope he's going to score some goals for the team."
