Holman: I can't wait to wear the new Villa shirts next season
Brett Holman donned the new home shirt for the first time and declared: "I can't wait to wear this for Villa next season."
Holman gave both the home and away kit the thumbs-up after taking part in the publicity shoot ahead of this afternoon's unveiling.
Holman can't wait for pre-season as he aims to impress boss Paul Lambert on the fields of Bodymoor Heath.
And he's relishing donning the claret and blue kit in competitive action once the 2012-13 campaign begins.
He said: "It's a good feeling to put on that Villa shirt for the first time. I'm excited to be here.
"I've obviously seen the claret and blue strip on television many times but it's great to get it on.
"The interesting thing is I'm coming here from AZ Alkmaar, whose shirts are also created by Macron so I know how good quality the strips are.
"How the kit feels is important. You have to feel good in what you wear. I am looking forward to testing this out for Villa next season.
"I am so happy to be here. It's a dream come true to be a Premier League player. To have that opportunity at a club with the history and tradition of Villa is fantastic.
"I am so excited and can't wait to get started.
"There are big names here. I was more than aware of the quality players at Villa, even though I've obviously come from the Eredivisie in Holland.
"Just look at Darren Bent, who's a top-quality goalscorer and a proven England international. I want to meet up and play with the lads. It's certainly exciting times.
"I can't wait to get involved, meet the lads and get stuck into life at Villa.
"The first time stepping out at Villa Park will be a big moment, also. It will be a great feeling. It's a great stadium and I can't wait.
"I think I can contribute a lot to the team. I want to show what I'm worth."
