Nigel Reo-Coker is convinced Steve Sidwell will soon become an Aston Villa favourite.

"He'll be a great addition to the team. He's a good player. He's got a good engine on him and he gets goals," Reo-Coker told Villa's website.

"He's a true goalscoring midfielder and I'm sure he'll get a lot of goals for us throughout the season.

"We've got great attacking options all over the pitch. We've got players who can create and make things happen and we have got match winners."
