Andreas Weimann shuns move away from Villa Park by committing to the Villains for three more years.
Aston Villa midfielder Andreas Weimann has agreed terms to a new three-year contract extension at the club, which will see the Austrian under contract until 2016.
The 21-year old had a stellar year for the relegation battlers, scoring 12 goals in the Premier League, whilst also earning his first caps for the full Austria side too.
Weimann said on the club’s official website how relieved he was to agree to a new deal, and that he owed manager Paul Lambert ‘a lot’.
“I’m really happy that I’ve signed. I love the Club and it’s been brilliant for me, for I have a feeling of being at home here at Aston Villa,” Weimann said on avfc.co.uk.
“I’ve been here for six seasons now, having started with the Academy in 2006, and last season was tremendous for me and terrific for the team the way we played over the second half of a really demanding campaign.
“I feel like I owe the manager and the Club because the manager backed me last season after he came in and I have always felt comfortable and really supported at the Club.”
The 21-year old had been rumoured to leave the club earlier this summer for Liverpool, but after no move materialised, the Austrian has stuck his colours to the mast and committed to the long-term plan set out by Paul Lambert to turn Aston Villa into a European force again.
