Yacouba Sylla says that he is "excited" by the prospect of playing for Aston Villa.

French midfielder Yacouba Sylla has said that he is up for the fight of keeping Aston Villa in the Premier League.

The 22-year-old inked a three-and-a-half-year deal on transfer deadline day and could make his debut against Everton today.

Sylla, who has one Under-21 cap for France, said that he is "excited" to join a club of Villa's magnitude.

"The challenge of joining such a big club as Villa excites me," he told the club's official website. "I have had a great welcome from everybody. I've now met everyone.

"I've seen that things have been difficult here recently, but I want to fight for the club and help the team."

"I am a defensive midfielder, a ball winner. I want to help the team to defend well. That's my aim."

Villa are currently 19th in the table.
