Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood is convinced new boy Rudy Gestede can be a hit at Villa Park.
The 26-year-old completed a £6m move from Blackburn to Villa last week, and Sherwood praised the Frenchman saying he is better in the air than any player in the country.
"Rudy has a lot of qualities but one outstanding one and that's his aerial presence, which is immense,” said the Villa boss.
"It's better than anything I have seen around in English football. He terrorises defenders in the air.
"With respect to the central defenders in the Championship, they are there because there's a great aerial presence in that division.
"So if he can do that to them, I am sure he can do it to the guys in the Premier League. His goalscoring record is terrific too."
He added: "Everyone talks about Jordan Rhodes and absolutely right because he scores goals, but Rudy outscored him last season.
"They're talking about £11m upwards for Jordan. We think we have a bargain with Rudy. Also, he's a great guy and wants to develop and learn."
