Villa extend Bouma deal

Aston Villa today took up a year extension on Holland defender Wilfred Bouma’s contract.

The defender has been an ever present this season and has scored one goal, in the 4-1 victory over Newcastle United.

At the end of next season, it is believed Villa will offer Bouma a 2/3 year deal to remain at the club.

Manager Martin O’Neill is quoted as saying:

“We are at least taking up the one-year option and want to extend that by at least another year,” he said.

“We are in discussions and will be having more talks at the end of the season”.

The defender was signed by David O’Leary from PSV Eindhoven in 2005.
