Libor Kozak: New striker hoping to settle quickly at Aston Villa

Villa swooped to secure Kozak's services on transfer deadline day, with a £7million deal taking him from Serie A to the Premier League.

The towering 24-year-old is looking to hit the ground running in England and feels playing alongside proven frontmen such as Klose in the past can only help him heading forward.

Kozak said: "Playing with such a strong player at Lazio, I hope I was able to learn something from him. I also hope to help improve Villa.

"My ambition is to score goals and to fit in with my new team-mates."

Kozak, who plundered 10 goals in continental competition last season, added: "I scored goals in the Europa League and I'm happy about this because it's not easy."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
