'Delighted' Young would love new Villa deal
Winger Ashley Young has intimated he would like to follow Gabriel Agbonlahor and John Carew in signing a new contract with Aston Villa.
Striker Agbonlahor has put pen to paper on a new four-year deal while fellow forward Carew has signed a year's extension which will keep him at Villa until the end of the 2010-2011 campaign.
Young still has nearly three seasons to run of the four-and-a-half year deal he signed when moving to Villa from Watford for £8million in the January 2007 transfer window.
But Villa manager Martin O'Neill is keen to reward Young with a new deal for the performances which saw him break into the England squad last season although he has been left out of the party to face the Czech Republic at Wembley on Wednesday.
Young said: 'What about my own contract situation? I am just happy playing my football. But, if anything like that comes about, I'll be delighted.
'I've got this season and two more years left. I'm happy, really happy with how things are going, happy here at Aston Villa.
'I am just looking to build on the performances of last season during this season and I'm glad we got off to a good start at the weekend against Manchester City.
'Would I like to commit to a new contract? Of course. It is a fantastic club. I am delighted I'm playing here.'
O'Neill said: 'Ashley has been fantastic for us and we are in conversation with him over that (a new contract).
'He hasn't come and asked for anything. He has got a number of years left of the deal he signed when he came here to run but I'd like to sort him out (with a new contract).'
