Aston Villa boss Dean Smith heaped praise on the club's new signing Mahmoud 'Trezeguet' Hassan, adding that the winger has the desire to be a Premier League player.

The Egyptian winger joined Aston Villa from Kasimpasa where he produced many fine displays with the Turkish club last season, scoring nine goals in 34 appearances.

"Trezeguet is a good player," Smith told Aston Villa's official website on Monday.

"I went to watch him in the African Cup of Nations and I really liked him.

"He has the hunger and the desire to be a Premier League player."

Despite Egypt's disappointing elimination from the Africa Cup of Nations round of 16, Trezeguet was one of the best performers in the Pharaohs squad during the continental competition.    

The 24-year-old, who is a product of Ahly's youth teams, started his European career in the summer of 2015 when he joined Belgian side Anderlecht before moving to Kasimpasa two years later.
