Confirmed: This Aston Villa star pens new contract extension


Right-back Ahmed Elmohamady has signed a new one-year contact extension at Aston Villa.

The Egyptian, signed from Hull City two summers ago, was a mainstay in Villa’s play-off winning season last term.

The 31-year-old has continued his fine form under Dean Smith in the Premier League and has played in each of Villa’s opening encounters against Tottenham and Bournemouth.

Elmohamady made over 40 appearances in the Championship last season and is closing in on a century of games for Villa, such has been his importance for the B6 club.

The former Sunderland man captained Egypt at the African Cup of Nations earlier this summer and was a key instigator to help Villa sign Egyptian teammate Trezeguet from Turkish outfit Kasimpasa.

 

It’s now believed Elmohamady’s new deal will take him to the summer of 2021.

He said: “I’m absolutely delighted. Playing for Aston Villa is unbelievable. When I cam here the main thing here was to get the club back to the Premier League.

“I had a very difficult first year, we didn’t go up against Fulham but we did it last year. The Championship is the most difficult league in the year and, in the Premier League, hopefully we can have another successful year.

“Premier League is always a big league. The main target for us is to finish as high as we can and to be in the Premier League. It will take time.”
