Villa Wing Wizard Over The Moon

Some good news as Villa winger Marc Albrighton who has really pushed himself into a deserved regular start for the first team this season, has extended his contract.

The deal lasts until the summer of 2014.

He said, much like that little Flump, on: www.avfc.co.uk that he is 'over the moon`.

'As soon as the gaffer came to me and said the club would like to offer me a new deal I was always going to sign it. There was no doubt about that. This is the club I want to be at. It's the club I've loved playing at for the last 12 years. I don't see any reason to change that."

He also says having been a supporter of Villa since a kid, he is at the 'perfect club` and says signing the new deal feels 'absolutely brilliant`.

And on the new boss Gerard Houllier he says: 'The manager is a big factor, definitely. He's got a great track record and he's a great manager, as are the other staff who work around him. The lads are brilliant too so for me it's a no-brainer.'

The Official Site also quotes la boss, or is it le boss... Houllier who says that Albrighton has stepped up a level this seeason.

forum'His work rate, attitude, effort, running back - it was an example.

'When you have the talent as well as the attitude, the commitment, being a pro, looking after yourself, working hard in games and training it means a lot.'
