Villa signing Holman seeks attacking role

Aston Villa summer signing Brett Holman hopes for an attacking role at his new club.

The former AZ Alkmaar midfielder says he does his best work as a second striker.

"I like to play in behind the strikers and I'm an attacking player," said Holman. "I like to always go forward to create goals, score goals and defensive wise it's not in my thinking really.

"You have to attack a lot and score goals to win games.

"When I first moved to Holland it was my aim to move into that role and I sort of moved from left to right.

"At AZ I played from the left side coming inside and with the Australian national team I play in behind the strikers."
