John Carew has announced he would like to end his career at Villa, and that he's not thinking of moving anywhere else.
Carew hasn't even hit two years at the club yet, but he's notched up 54 appearances with a return of 21 goals.
His goal tally is better than it's been at any other club in his career, infact the second best was 20 goals in 84 appearances for Valencia.
Speaking on the official site, he said:
'I'm very happy here. I'm proud to be part of the club because there's great ambition and I'm sure we have a great future.
'That's why I signed a new contract. I love the club. I love the fans and we have a great group of players.
'Football in this country suits me very well. It's a very quick game, which I really like. I think I've found the right football country.
'I would like to finish my career here. I'm not thinking of going anywhere else.'
On the topic of his goal return, a ratio of a goal basically every two and a half games, he added:
'I don't keep a note of the goals I score. I know some strikers do, but it's something I've never done.
'I don't set targets either. All that matters to me is to keep improving as a player - the rest should come automatically.'
With Gabby's improvement this season, and growth as a lone striker it has given us more options. Plenty were talking about the Man U game and how we seemed to defend as a 4-5-1 yet on attack Young and Milner stepped up and we countered like a 4-3-3 which does give us options when Carew is having an off day.
With him being so happy at the club, hopefully we'll see a bit more consistency from him and see John Carew at his defence destroying best more often.
