Aston Villa full-back Mark Delaney has been handed a new four-year contract at the club.
The 24-year-old Welsh international joined Villa from Cardiff City in March last year for what has turned out to be a bargain £500,000, and the new deal doubles his money at Villa Park.

His original contract still had three years left to run, but Villa manager John Gregory has revised the terms and extended the deal for a further 12 months.

Delaney has seen off competition from Steve Watson, who moved to Everton for £2.5M this summer, for the right-back spot at Villa Park and has impressed Gregory with his commitment and composure in his first season, making 39 appearances in all competitions.

However, the Pembrokeshire-born star will still receive punishment from his manager after being sent off in Villa’s InterToto Cup clash against Dukla Pribram at the weekend.

With 10 minutes remaining in the third-round first-leg match in the Czech Republic, the 24-year-old Welsh defender kicked out at keeper Michal Spit and recieved the red card, putting him out of the second-leg at Villa Park.
