Barry Bannan feeling at home with Aston Villa

Aston Villa's Scottish midfielder Barry Bannan says he now feels at home.

The Airdie-born youngster is still a proud Scotsman, but admits that the Midlands now feels like his home.

"I've been down here since I was 14 so that's six years now," Bannan told the Sunday Mail.

"It was hard at first. When I was younger I had to go to school in England for two years. "About a year down the line I'd made friends and I wouldn't move back to Scotland now. "I feel like an adopted Brummie now, but I don't want my family to know that!

"I'd always go back to Scotland to visit because all my family are back there."
