Ron Vlaar is hoping he can help bring back the good times to Aston Villa after completing a move to the Barclays Premier League club.
The Holland international, who was part of his country's Euro 2012 squad, has penned a three-year deal with the midlands club after making the switch from Feyenoord. Vlaar, 27, is convinced his best years are ahead of him after committing to Villa until the end of the 2014-2015 campaign and wants to bring success back to the club after two disappointing seasons.
"This is a dream come true for me," said Vlaar. "I am very happy that Villa have given me this chance. For me, I want to play a lot and improve my play and do well with the team - that's most important."
