Agbonlahor impressed by Villa summer signings

Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor is full of praise for their summer signings.

Agbonlahor reckons the likes of Joe Bennett, Matthew Lowton and Ashley Westwood have relished their step up to the big time since arriving at the club during the summer transfer window.

"I think you can say that new boys lack Premier League experience, but they are going to get that," said Agbonlahor to Villa's website.

"The more games they play they will learn and get better and I think that is showing already.

"It is good from the gaffer's point of view that he has faith in these players, especially in training people have done really well.

"One example is Ashley Westwood, who has come in to training and not looked out of place.

"He's done really well and not looked different to any other player in the squad.

"So I think the gaffer has made his choices and he's made them because he thinks those players can do it and so far in training and in games they have shown that they can."
