Aston Villa's new manager Steven Gerrard has been welcomed to the city of Birmingham by a lego brick tribute at the Legoland Discovery Centre.

The new head coach will replace Dean Smith with the aim to turnaround Villa’s five consecutive losing streak.

Meanwhile, Norwich City have appointed former Aston Villa boss Dean Smith as their new head coach.

At the Lego Discovery Centre in Birmingham a 'mini Gerrard' has been kitted out with Aston Villa's home kit and the number 4 on his back to play homage to his England number.

The lego model shows the former England Captain being thrown a welcome party at the Miniland Villa Park stadium, with a large sign that reads 'Welcome Gerrard.'

Amy Langham, Legoland Discovery Centre Birmingham’s General Manager said: "All of us here at the centre are thrilled to welcome Steven Gerrard to the Aston Villa family and wanted to show him a warm welcome, the best way we know how. 

"He was a true leader at Rangers and became a national football star during his time as captain for England and Liverpool.

"Our new LEGO mini figure of Steven Gerrard is our way of wishing him good luck at the club, we hope he leads the squad to bricktory."
