(GSM) – Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has lavished praise on Aston Villa defender Richard Dunne, tagging the Irish defender as the signing of the season.

After being told that he is surplus to requirements at Manchester City, Dunne signed for £5million in the summer. And the Republic of Ireland international quickly proved to be an excellent signing for Aston Villa, as he instantly settled in at Villa Park and formed a solid central defensive partnership with James Collins.

Martin O’Neill’s side has the best defensive record in the Premier League this season and Ferguson acknowledges that Dunne’s signing contributed to his side’s impressive defensive records.

“Martin has done a good job in a quiet way, without spending a great deal of money,” he told the Daily Star.

“He has bought very wisely and signing Dunne, for me, is the buy of the season – £5million for him was outstanding business.

“Martin has done a terrific job with his players. They are a professional, organised team and have improved defensively with Dunne and James Collins.”
