Paul Lambert believes that Leandro Bacuna's energy and versatility will be "a real asset" next season as the Dutch Under-21 international completed a move from FC Groningen.

The 21-year-old wide midfield player put pen to paper on a three-year deal to 2016 and manager Lambert insists he will fit well into his young, emerging side.

"Leandro's energy and versatility will be really good for us," said Lambert.

"He's a good player, he has bags of energy and he will make an impact.

"He's another player we believe will do well for us. He has played in big games and he has lots of experience for a player so young."

Bacuna is an attacking midfield player from Groningen. He made his debut for his hometown team FC Groningen in August 2009, coming on as a substitute against PSV Eindhoven. He has played 126 times for the Euroborg-based club in all competitions, scoring 17 times.

In the 2012/13 season he started 30 times and came on for seven more appearances for Groningen and scored five goals. In 2011/12 he played 33 times with 28 starts and scored seven goals.

He has also played for Holland's prestigious under-21 team 10 times, scoring once against Bulgaria in Maastricht in June 2012.

"It feels great. It's a new beginning for me and I'm looking forward to being part of this young, hungry team we have at Villa," Bacuna said.

I've got to admit I'm dissappointed.  He's gone from being unheard of, to a rumour, to officially signed and now photographed in a shirt, yet no-one has managed to post a youtube montage to some eurodance beep beep music.  This is not the way it works!

I tried but I couldn't copy and paste the link quick enough to beat Lambert.

Another one who has really good technique, we're going to be an excellent sie once all these lads settle, having a squad full of players who are good on the ball, work hard and can grow together is really exciting, much happier with this than with signing cast offs and players from the relegated sides.
