Villa said: "In the summer I had my own reasons for staying in Spain. Basically, my wife had to give birth first.
"But this time it will be different and I'll analyse it again. I like the Premier League a lot. There are a lot of very important teams in England, who play very good football.
"It's the league I follow the most, along with La Liga - and I've got a lot of friends playing there."
Villa's scoring return in La Liga over the last decade is second to none. The 5ft 9in forward has never hit less than 15 goals in a campaign.
