Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey reveals that he grew up supporting Aston Villa and continues to follow the Premier League side.

Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey has revealed that he is a lifelong Aston Villa supporter.

The 26-year-old became the most accurate kicker in NFL history by converting all three of his field goals in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Seattle Seahawks.

"I grew up following soccer and following specific players," Bailey told AVTV. "A lot of those players played for Aston Villa so I just grew fond of the team and it all took hold from there.

"I have continued supporting them ever since. I was a big Gareth Barry fan. He was a lot of fun to watch. I loved the way he played and his style on the pitch. I like Gabby Agbonlahor now. He's great to watch."

Bailey met the players during a pre-season training camp in Texas.
