Alpay wants a second chance

The unsettled defender, who has played only four games for Villa so far this season, wants to put his troubles at Villa Park behind him and force his way back into the first team.

"I want to forget everything," said Alpay.

"Enough is enough. I want to prove myself to Aston Villa's supporters and the club.

"I've put everything behind me and I want to play again. I want a second chance. I miss all the cheering when I walk out to play for Villa.

"At the moment all that is important to me is proving myself to those fans.

"I will give 100% to see that day - and we'll see what happens."
