Charles N'Zogbia pleased with Aston Villa's new signings after promising start

After a busy summer and a solid start to the season, the winger has praised what the new signings have brought to Villa.

Aston Villa winger Charles N'Zogbia has praised the club's summer signings for how well they have settled into the club.

Philippe Senderos, Aly Cissokho, Tom Cleverley, Kieran Richardson, Carlos Sanchez Moreno and Joe Cole were all part of Paul Lambert's recruitment drive in the summer.

N'Zogbia told the Aston Villa website: "We have a good team. The new signings have come in and they are really good.

"Philippe has a lot of experience. Carlos hasn't played much yet but he is a really good player. Aly is a good lad who works hard. There's Kieran and Tom - it's really good. It's good to have to have these boys here. They are good lads.

"The dressing room is really good. The lads have settled in really fast. Everyone is happy here. It's not complicated.

"Everyone took to each other very quickly. We have a good vibe here. It's a good atmosphere. It's really good.

"We had a really good start to the season. We did really well."

Vila took 10 points from their opening four games of the Premier League campaign, which included a 1-0 win over Liverpool at Anfield. It was the start of a difficult set of fixtures where they faced Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City. From those three games they were unable to take anything.

The signings that came into the club provide plenty of experience in the Premier League at sides that challenge towards the top end of the table. Their back line has so far looked solid, and the midfield has looked capable of at least competing with their opponents in the middle of the park.

Villa currently sit 10th in the table and are one point off a Champions League spot at this early stage of the season. Next they face a trip to Everton before their run of fixtures starts to become a little more favourable. Then Villa will hope to kick on from what has been a good, solid start to their campaign.
