Marc Albrighton signs new three year deal with Aston Villa

You know I quite like this young player and think he has massive potential, so you'll be happy to find out he has signed a new contract with the club today. It's also nice to have some good news form the club instead of the live blog and special offers.

Albrighton showed us all what he is capable of in the Peace Cup this year and has shown many more what he has for a number of years, having joined the club as a 9 year old.

Martin O'Neill is also a happy manager, but he would be with all this talent at the club and he did have some positive words to say about the player earlier.

Martin O'Neill
I couldn't be more delighted that Marc has signed his new contract. He has a real chance of becoming a top quality Premier League player. I am absolutely delighted he has committed himself to us.

In other news today, Marlon Harewood is off to Newcastle for three months on loan.
