Villa chief praises new boy's attributes
Paul Lambert claimed Sheffield United star Matthew Lowton's hunger to succeed was one of the reasons why he took him to Aston Villa.
The Villa boss made the 23-year-old defender his second summer signing since taking over last month after the player penned a four-year deal at Villa Park for a fee thought to be in the region of £3million.
And Lambert feels Lowton, who has plenty of experience for his age having worked his way through the Academy ranks at Bramall Lane, is the ideal signing for Villa.
He said on the club's website: "Matthew is a really talented young player who brings a lot of things that can really benefit the club. He's a good player already and he's only young so he has the potential to be a really good player for us.
"He's hungry to succeed and to go further in the game, both of which are attributes that we want at this football club and that we are looking for.
"We won't put any pressure on him. We just want him to go out and enjoy playing. What he's done so far at Sheffield United has been great so hopefully we can progress him a bit and he'll do very well for us."
