USA Tour 2014: Hendrie joins AVTV team for Stateside trip
Hendrie will travel over the States with the in-house video team for media coverage of the tour to Dallas and Houston.
The former midfield ace will provide co-commentary alongside Jack Woodward on matches against FC Dallas and Houston Dynamo as well as providing expert analysis on all aspects of the excursion against the pond.
He will take part in Q&A sessions with claret and blue supporters - as well as donning his boots once again as he takes part in supporters club games in both USA cities.
Hendrie said: "I am delighted to take on this exciting role for the tour of USA.
"To be back involved with the club I loved playing for is very special.
"I can't wait to head over Stateside, meet the fans, watch the first team matches, give my views on my action - and then get my boots out for a couple of games myself."
Villa fly out to USA on Saturday July 19 before matches against FC Dallas on Wednesday July 23 and Houston Dynamo on Saturday July 26.
Supporters not travelling to the USA can follow all of the action from the tour on AVTV, including full delayed coverage of both games.
There will also be blogs, picture galleries and up-to-the-minute news from our team of reporters out in the States as we visit places like Dallas Cowboys and Mission Control.
