Jean Makoun has revealed that he is eager to get started at Aston Villa.
The former Lyon midfielder is relishing working with the claret and blue players he’s been watching from afar.
He told AVTV: “The players here are very, very good. I have watched the team a few times and I have been following the progress of the side for quite a while.
“I am hoping things will really start to pick up now and we start moving up the table.
“I want to help a lot. I want to contribute.
“At Lyon we had a very difficult few months but we put a lot of effort in and we managed to pick up and move up the table. I want the same to happen here at Villa.
“I am at a good age now too – 27. I am at a point in my career now where I have a lot of maturity and experience and that should be beneficial to Villa.”
