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.

Mister Mick
Will this be the man to replace Mellberg as Villa's current legend / cult / holte end hero??

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.
