Bannan Commits To B6

Bannan Commits To B6

Barry Bannan is over the moon with his new contract extension that will keep him at Villa Park until 2014.

Speaking to the Official Site as the Bananaman posed for photos, the diminutive little Scotland debuting midfielder declared he was 'over the moon' and delighted to commit his immediate future to us.

'Everything this season has been unbelievable, I could never have imagined it going so well for me. To get the deal is icing on the cake really.'

The youngsters have definitely stepped up to the plate recently, and Bannan's new deal comes hot on the heels of new extended contracts being given to Albie and Clark.

'I am over the moon to be at the club, it's one of the biggest in the country. It's a pleasure to be in and around a club like this. A new contract is brilliant. I'd sign my life away probably here the way it's going at the moment, it's fantastic.'

Like all our younger lads so far, there's definitely a spirit amongst them and they are keeping their feet firmly grounded with whatever is being thrown at them of late.

It's probably no surprise to see Bannan discuss coming through the ranks with his 'mates' and now making an impact in the Premiership with them, but instead of it all being 'me, me, me' Bannan rightly saves mention for all those behind the scenes who have helped not just him, but the current crop emerging into the first team.

'A big thanks has to go to all the coaches that have led us on the way - Sean Verity, Gordon Cowans, Tony McAndrew and Kevin MacDonald. They have all contributed and brought us on as players. The gaffer has given us a chance too so a big thanks has to go to him too.'

Humble and thankful, it's nice to see from players!

This is excellent news as I've already thought about other clubs sniffing around. I'm not worried about Albrighton as he's Villa through and through but what if Bazza strikes up a good partnership with Fletcher for Scotland and Utd come calling!? :( He seems pretty happy in Claret & Blue right now though so that's what matters. :)
