Stiliyan Petrov is surprised West Ham ever allowed Nigel Reo-Coker - "one of the top midfielders in the world" - to move to Aston Villa.

Petrov is thrilled at the prospect of being able to forge a partnership with England Under-21 captain Reo-Coker, who cost £8.5million when he made the switch from Upton Park earlier this month.

"He´s the type of player who has a great heart, superb ability and he never gives up. To have someone in our team like that is great," said Petrov.
