John Carew is looking for more goals next season, and considering he's looked upon as a 'nomad' in football, it doesn't look like he's going anywhere else soon!
Speaking on the official site, Carew is delighted that Villa are looked upon as 'the entertainers' and he's 'well chuffed' that we not only created so many chances but that we scored so many aswell.
Carew bagged himself 13 goals in the league campaign, and overall Villa found the net 71 times. Only Man U and Arsenal scored more.
'It is good that we keep creating chances and that is something we hope to build on next season after such a good goalscoring record this year.
'We are pleased to have got sixth place - we thought we might have got fifth place but sixth it is and if you had offered us that at the start of the season, we would have been very happy.
'We will have a well earned break now and then we will be back in July and ready for Europe. We will relax our heads a bit and then be back and raring to go.'
there were a few rumours the other month that Carew would be moving on again this window, that he hadn't fully settled and so on.
I think the next few comments put those rumours to bed nicely.
'This has been a great season for Aston Villa and it underlines for me, absolutely, that I made the right choice in coming here from Lyon.
'I hoped when I came here that we would qualify for Europe and we have achieved that now, which is fantastic.'
Sound like a player who is going anywhere?
I just have my fingers crossed he can play the whole campaign next year and be as sharp in front of goal that we have seen at points this season. There's no doubt his injuries and lack of fitness at points has let him down, so a fully on form Carew next term will be a sight to behold.
