Wales international defender Mark Delaney has been 'left wondering' about his future and thinks that Villa aren't going to take up the one year option on his contract this march.
The 29-year-old, who has been a revelation since partnering Olof Mellberg in central defence, put in a transfer request in December after Villa refused to enter into talks to extend his contract - which runs out in the summer.
Delaney said: 'If they see something in me they don't like, then I'm big enough to take it. But when people don't say anything you start wondering why?'
He says he is settled at Villa and would like to stay adding: 'They've had enough time to realise what I can do.'
Fellow defender Jlloyd Samuel has also said the club should get Delaney signed up adding 'He is proving now how much the squad needs him. The chairman should be knocking on his door because he will be a player you don't want to lose.'
The chairman is too busy panicking because he has left the club with no money Jlloyd.
What is mystifying is that no one at the club have spoken to him, how is that good management?
'I am hoping I've done enough. But I don't know. I've not had any feedback at all. I've tried to get my head down and concentrate on my football.'
Delaney, who joined in 1999 from Cardiff for £500 000, has also defended his injury record because they all followed bad challenges:
'I'm not going to argue that I've had my fair share of injuries - that's well publicised - but I've played 30 games on average every season'
Why not have your say, vote on our poll, should Delaney be kept on.
