Laursen New Deal Confirmed

Laursen New Deal Confirmed

The club have just announced that Martin Laursen has signed a new two-and-a-half-year deal.

The Danish defender has been a rock at the back and scored 6 goals putting him up with John Carew and just one behind top scorer Gabby Agbonlahor.

Martin O'Neill told the official site: "We have had excellent discussions and everyone at Aston Villa is delighted he is staying on. He has been playing some wonderful football for us this season and deserves everything he gets. I know the supporters will be as delighted as I am and I think it is also what Martin wanted. His determination to overcome serious injury is an object lesson to anybody and he has shown tremendous courage. The results are there for all to see."

Phew, great signing, now lets get Defoe and a right-back in and we'll all be smiling won't we?!?

Great news, now hopefully this will start MON off signing a few players to help us get to europe. Because I cannot see our squad lasting till the end of the season.

The news that we've all been waiting so long to here. Certainly made for a Happy Thursday. Best central defender in the country right now, bar none.
