We've covered the speculation surrounding Aston Villa and Feyenoord midfielder Karim El Ahmadi since the rumours started swirling around Paul Lambert's interest in the Moroccan midfielder. And now it's official: El Ahmadi has become Paul Lambert's first signing for Aston Villa, inking a three-year deal with the club. In a press conference, El Ahmadi said he was excited about coming to Aston Villa and the Premier League, and described his style of play:

"As a player, I always want to have the ball and that is my main quality. I always want the ball and to dictate the game. That's what I did at Feyenoord and hopefully I can show the fans, the club and the manager my quality."

Needless to say, we here at 7500 to Holte will have much more analysis on El Ahmadi and where he will fit into Paul Lambert's plans for Aston Villa, but for now we'll leave you with visions of El Ahmadi and Jean Il Makoun dancing in your heads. The Euros are well and truly over, and now the real fun begins.
