Holman holds no Villa grudge: Just wasn't to be

Al Nasr signing Brett Holman holds no grudge against former club Aston Villa.

Holman, who was signed by - but never played for - Alex McLeish, fell out of favour with Lambert in the second half of last season and has committed himself to the UAE Pro-League club until the summer of 2015.

"It is a move you have to put a lot of thought into," said Holman.

"It's a big step.

"The Premier League is a fantastic competition and I was at a great club, Aston Villa.

"They treated me really well, but it wasn't meant to be there.

"I have a lot of ambition and so does this club, Al-Nasr."
