Forward Holt's new Villa squad number revealed


Grant Holt will wear the No.29 shirt for Villa this season.

Holt signed on loan until the end of the season on Tuesday.

Watch the exclusive interview with Holt now.

Players to have worn that number include James Collins and Peter Whittingham.

Holt is relishing being an old head in a youthful claret and blue squad.

He said: "The manager is trying to build a strong base with youthful, hungry players while adding experience in there too - the likes of Ron Vlaar, Brad Guzan and Karim El Ahmadi.

"I'm just delighted to be a part of it to try and get the best out of them and, hopefully, they will also get the best out of me.

"It's a massive opportunity for me personally, an opportunity I couldn't turn down.

"To be able to come back into the Premier League, especially at a club as big as Villa, is fantastic and it's an opportunity for me to work with the gaffer and his staff again as well."
