Villa confirms Vlaar captureAug 1, 2012 - 2:50 PM Birmingham, England (Sports Network) - Aston Villa completed the signing of Netherlands defender Ron Vlaar on Wednesday for an undisclosed fee.
Vlaar joins Villa on a three-year contract from Feyenoord and arrives on the same day that defender James Collins secured a move from Villa to West Ham.
"Ron is a really good defender. He has a wealth of experience for both Holland and a big football club in Feyenoord, so I'm delighted we have got him here to Villa," said manager Paul Lambert.
"I like the way the guy wants to do well. He's hungry and he wants to succeed. He's also a really good, strong defender and hopefully we will get the benefit of him in our team."
The 27-year-old took part at Euro 2012 for the Netherlands, starting two of the team's three games at the tournament.
