Davis Deal Extended

Davis Deal Extended

As expected, Steven Davis has put pen to paper and signed a new three and a half year contract at Aston Villa.

The young midfielder had been linked to Manchester United, although David O'Leary has stressed that Utd had no contact at all in reference to Davis.

The contract will keep the Northern Ireland international at Villa Park until at least the summer of 2009.

Davis, who is 21 next month, is expected to be on around £10 000 a week. Deep sigh..........oh sorry, I was just thinking what I'd do with £10 000 a week!

David O'Leary said: 'Steven has been on small money and we wanted to try and get the contract up to a decent figure. He has done excellently for us in the past year or so. I put him in the team and I want to keep him. To me people like Steven Davis are the long-term future of this football club. He is doing marvellously well. He is quiet boy who doesn't say much. Yes, the lad has got to go and develop and mature a lot more yet but he can go places in the game.'

Adding 'Sometimes young players can be up and down form-wise when they come into the side, especially in the Premier League, but he has been very consistent.'

Steven Davis said: 'A lot has happened in a year since making my full debut and I have been enjoying the way things have been going and I'm happy at Villa. When I got my chance I was out to impress and give the manager something to think about when he was picking the team and I think I did that. Luckily enough he has played me in quite a few games since then. This season I just seemed to get into the side for the first match and luckily enough I have stayed in there and played every game up until a couple of weeks go. I have had quite a good run in the side and that helps. It gives you a bit more confidence and I hope I can kick on.'

Davis is currently our top scorer with five goals, three of which were scored in the Premiership.
