New Aston Villa signing Antonio Luna cannot wait to start his Premier League career at Villa Park.
The 22-year-old left-back has signed for Paul Lambert's side from La Liga outfit Sevilla, for whom he made just six appearances last term.
Luna did spend the second half of the season on loan at Mallorca, where he played 11 games, and the Spanish youth international showed enough in that spell to interest the Premier League club.
The defender ie keen to get started at Villa, as Lambert continues to add to his squad.
"I've always believed that I could play in the Premier League," Luna told the club's official website.
"To have this opportunity with a club as historic and huge as Aston Villa and with a manager who is building a squad of young players with great prospects is tremendously exciting for me.
"I really can't wait to get started and to play my first game. I have a great expectation coming here.
"The manager explained to me that it is a young squad but also one with good experience and everyone is hungry, everybody wants to succeed here.
"This is perfect because I am keen to make progress myself and I want to be part of this."
Luna is confident he can quickly adapt to the demands of English football, and will take inspiration from the success that his compatriots have enjoyed in the Premier League.
"Obviously, I have watched Premier League games and I am totally aware of the pace of the game and that the challenge is to constantly be at the maximum and top of your performance," he said.
"There have been many good and great players from Spain who have come here and succeeded and I know I can adapt my game also.
"The quality of football in La Liga is also respected everywhere and this is why I believe I can do well in the Premier League."
