Bouma Given Villa Contract Extension

Bouma Given Villa Contract Extension

Aston Villa left-back Wilfred Bouma has signed a 2-year contract extension, with an option for a third year.

The big Dutchman is currently recovering following the horrific injury he suffered in the Inter-Toto cup match against Odense BK, a massive blow for Villa as Bouma looked set for another fantastic season, having been a rather solid portion of last season`s defensive line.

The injury, coupled with that of prospect full-back Stephen O`Halloran prompted manager Martin O`Neill to make an extra move in the transfer market, signing Reading`s Nicky Shorey for an undisclosed fee.

Despite the long-term absence, Martin O`Neill has sought to keep the Netherlands international at Villa Park.

Great news for the club and I dare say perfect medicine for Wilf as he continues his journey back to fitness after the dislocated ankle.

Too true PBAVFC, I would have argued Barry, but we all know that is unlikely now!!

Well received news, not only by Freddie, but by Villa supporters everywhere. A very popular individual amongst Villans, not least because he always gives his 100%, even if perhaps things aren't going his way.

Has improved his overall game in leaps and bounds since his arrival, and is now arguably a more consistent overall performer. Speedy recovery Freddie, you face another challenge, but you've reached and surpassed all others since arriving at Brummagem B6.
