Villa boss Lambert grateful to Eck for Holman signing

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is grateful to predecessor Alex McLeish for snapping up Brett Holman.

Holman joined Villa on a Bosman from AZ Alkmaar.

Lambert said: "I don't know if he had offers from the Premier League before, he might have done. Maybe teams did go in for him, I'm not so sure. But Villa are fortunate to have him,

"If Alex McLeish scouted him then its great credit to him because he's doing great for the club."
