El Ahmadi happy to join Holman at Villa

New Aston Villa signing Karim El Ahmadi is pleased to join fellow Eredivisie star Brett Holman at Villa Park.

El Ahmadi joins from Feyenoord just weeks about Holman arrived from AZ Alkmaar.

He said: "I've played against Brett a lot of times, not only when he was at AZ but when he was younger he played at Feyenoord.

"He's a great player and it's good for him, too, to come to a club like this and to make a step up.

"In Holland he showed his quality and now it's good to have him next to me. He's a great player to play with and he never gives up. I don't think I ever saw him standing still on the pitch."
