Cahill follows Ridgewell in signing new Villa deal

Gary Cahill is set to emulate Aston Villa defensive partner Liam Ridgewell and sign a new contract.

Ridgewell is expected to put pen to paper on a new three-year deal on Monday - with Cahill following suit later in the week.

The 20-year-old showed great promise when breaking into the Villa side at the tail-end of last season and he scored a spectacular goal in the derby win over Birmingham.

He refused to be rushed into signing a new deal and was happy for negotiations to be postponed until the summer.

But now the indications are he will commit himself to Villa until the end of the 2008-2009 campaign.

Cahill told PA Sport: 'I'm more than happy here and I've enjoyed my football. I just wanted to concentrate on keeping my place in the team and put the contract on hold until the end of the season.

'There were a few things I read which upset me about being a money grabber. If you play in the Premier League, money comes anyway.

'It is more important for me to play in the Premier League. I did quite well in some games but I don't want to be a flash in the pan and want to kick on next season.

'I think consistency is the key. If I can be consistent in performances, than everything else will take care of itself.

'It was a frustrating season because of injuries early on and I was glad it finished on a high because I was hoping to kick on and make my presence felt to a lot of people.'
