Rotherham signing Bowery has no Villa regrets
He joined from Chesterfield in 2012 for £500,000 and made 22 appearances - but just six starts -as he failed to make a serious impact.
"It was a massive jump from League Two to the Premier League but I enjoyed it," said the 22-year-old. "I learned a lot of things working with the likes of Gabby Agbonlahor, Darren Bent, Christian Benteke and Fabian Delph.
"I came on against Hull at the end of the season and did well and played against Manchester City, that was a great experience, and then I started again against Spurs. I did alright but hopefully those three games did me well."
