Aden Flint: Keen to earn regular place in side

The centre-back made the short move from Swindon on Tuesday after drawn out negotiations with the newly-relegated Ashton Gate outside.

And he believes the size of his new club persuaded him to leave The County Ground.

"I know it's a massive club with ambitions to get back into the Championship and I'm looking forward to being a part of those plans," he told City's official website.

"I want to have a good pre-season and push my way into the team. Hopefully I can then kick on throughout the season and win the majority of the games to help the team.

"There are a couple of weeks until we come in for pre-season and I'm looking forward to it. I'll have to get into the gym now and keep ticking over until then - I'm looking forward to starting."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
