Bannan Eager For New Deal

Bannan Eager For New Deal

Barry Bannan has said that he hopes he has done enough to convince Martin O'Neill to offer him a contract extension, and moreover he loves the club!

Speaking to the Express and Star the diminutive midfielder who only has a year left on is contract, said that the ideal place for him to continue his development was with the Villa and that he would sign, within reason, almost anything placed in front of him.

"I`ve got a year left, so hopefully I`ve done enough to prove to the gaffer I`ve earned a new contract.

"Ultimately it`s up to him, but if I get one I`ll sign it straightaway, because I love this club. They`ve been brilliant for me since I`ve been here."

With existing interest from Derby, and the E&S say Wigan are lurking, hopefully the club will tie him down to a long term contract sooner rather than later. Bannan definitely has the talent to forge out a good career for himself, and the inevitable comparisons to Barry are already being made due to his left foot.

But Bannan is certainly somebody you would hope to see more of next season, as he hardly put a foot wrong during the CSKA match.

He certainly isn't going to sit back and he admits he wants to make an impact in our next campaign and play more of a part in the first team.

I still think another loan spell would do him good, simply for the regular aspect of competative football which he won't get in our first team, and reserve matches aren't the same.

That said, with a bit of luck, Bannan will be a big player for us for many years to come.

He should already be signed up now. Top players cost silly money, nd he clearly has potential. He might be the kind of player that if given a run in the friendlies would come on leaps and bounds and be good enough to stay in the team for ever! OTT maybe - but maybe not. You never find out until you try. I hope he gets his chance.

I'm a little surprised it has been allowed to get to this stage to be honest but I am sure he will be signed up again. I genuinely believe that him & Albrighton are good enough to contribute next season. I am not saying we don't need to make signings, as we definitely do. But I do think them two could be added to the first-team options.
