The 53-year-old has already taken charge of a Villa fixture this season in the opening weekend defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road, with Ben Foster revealing Dean joked with Tom Cleverley after allowing play to continue in the build-up to a Hornets goal that afternoon.

He is famously known for that ‘celebration’ following a Tottenham goal against Villa back in 2015 and also sent off Douglas Luiz last season in Villa’s 1-0 win against Wolves.
