Leandro Bacuna: Vlaar presence convinced me about Villa
Bacuna has been impressed with the way the defender has settled in to life in England.
"He is a really nice guy and has the attitude to be a captain and I think we can hang around together a lot.
"He is a hero in Holland. He is doing well and he is a good defender. It is really nice for me to have someone who can help me settle in.
"It is a new team and you are meeting a lot of players. It is good for yourself and good for everybody. It is a new beginning.
"I'm going to do my best. I'm going to try and make a lot of goals and be a fan favourite. The Premier League for me is the top level and everyone wants to play here."
