Delaney - In And Then Out!

Delaney - In And Then Out!

David O'Leary has confirmed that Aston Villa will take up the one-year option on Mark Delaney's contract.

The 29-year-old Welsh wizard (!) has formed a decent partnership with Olof Mellberg in recent weeks in the centre of defence having impressed enough to keep Liam Ridgewell out of the team. He has managed a 13 game run before picking up another unfortunate injury - this time his knee - which will keep him out for up to three weeks.

Luckily the latest injury set back hasn't stopped the club following the managers wishes of offering the player a contract.

O'Leary told the official site: 'We are going to take up the option. That's been given to Mark this morning an it's absolutely great news. It's good news for everyone all round.'

Am I the only one who thinks MD will see this as a real slap in the face? He wanted a new contract to stop the uncertainty over his future. All this does is drag the uncertainty on for another year. Wouldnt suprise me if he handed in another transfer request.

I think it works well for him as in another year he can leave on a free if he wants and earn a lot more

I guess with the club as it currently is no one really kows how things will develop in the next 6 months or so, I therefore see this as a deal to satisfy all parties.

It is a slap in the face DeanoVilla, and you can bet the guy is fuming about the whole affair. It's not a new contract is it? All it is, is that the club has taken up the twelve month option on his existing deal, and its took them months to announce something that the player could have been told some time ago. He'll be off in the summer, and who can blame him. I personally think that he's been treated pretty badly over this.
