Ashley Westwood is happy he joined Aston Villa ahead of Swansea City.

The 22-year-old was expected to sign for the Welsh club, but Villa stepped in on deadline day to snap him up from Crewe for £2million.

Westwood said: “You want to be playing at places like Villa Park.

“It’s thousands of people and Villa have great fans, so I just want to be part of it.

“I don’t think you fear it, I think it’s something that motivates you.”
