New signing Joe Bennett faced the AVTV cameras following the completion of his move from Middlesbrough - and he couldn't keep the smile off his face.

Bennett was thrilled to join Villa and spoke of his admiration for the club's history and heritage as well as where it is headed, under the management of Paul Lambert.

Bennett spoke glowingly on Lambert, hailing the work he did at Norwich.

The 22-year-old discussed his excitement at the transfer and how he's looking to make an immediate impression in claret and blue.

Bennett chatted about the players he already knows from England U21 duty - Nathan Delfouneso, Gary Gardner and Nathan Baker - before giving an impressive précis of Baker's qualities as a defender.

Bennett explained the qualities of his game and the left-backs he's looked up to over the years - and how he's love to follow in their footsteps.

He spoke of the challenges posed by the Barclays Premier League and how playing in the Championship has given him a competitive edge.

Finally he discussed the qualities of Bodymoor Heath as a training complex and his desire to be a fan favourite with supporters at Villa.
