Ryan Bertrand checked in at Bodymoor Heath for his first day as a Villa player.

Bertrand put pen to paper on a loan deal and then was straight into media duties.

Bertrand was pictured holding up the claret and blue shirt, featuring sponsors Macron and Dafabet before more arty images in one of the pitch nets.

Then he was snapped face-on, for use on our website profiles section.

It was then into the TV room for his first interview as a newboy.

Bertrand was quizzed for 10 minutes by reporter/presenter Jack Woodward on a range of topics.

He was asked about his role in the Champions League final for Chelsea, playing at Villa Park in the Community Shield and his hopes and aspirations for the coming term.
