Agbonlahor delighted with new Aston Villa deal

The new four-and-a-half year contract will keep the 24-year-old at Villa Park until the summer of 2015.

“I’m delighted to carry on and sign this new contract,” he said.

“I am happy and I just want to keep on playing for Villa. It’s my childhood club.

“It’s the club I support and love, and I just want to keep playing and improving year on year.

“I am happy to commit to the club. Hopefully I can progress and keep improving on what I’ve done so far.”

“If you look at other clubs and the likes of Steven Gerrard with Liverpool, you can’t see him playing anywhere else – it’s the same with me,” he added.

“I can’t really see myself playing at any other club. It’s the club I love and I’m happy.

“I am happy the club have offered me this contract, which keeps me here for a long time into the future.

“It’s a good example for the young players. If they can work hard – the ones coming through – they can get this time at one club.

“It’s important nowadays to not move from club to club. If you’re happy at a club, stay there. That’s what I’m looking to do.”
