Harewood seeks Villa stay

21 June 2008 03:45
Aston Villa striker Marlon Harewood has vowed to stay with the club and prove his worth, following a difficult first season at Villa Park. The 28-year-old made just three starts for Villa last term following his arrival from West Ham United, but made a further 22 from the substitute's bench and scored six goals. Harewood said: "There's a lot more to come from this squad and hopefully a lot more to come from me. I want to play my part. "I'm looking forward to my second season here and hopefully I can show more of what I can do. Hopefully I'll get the chance to shine. "The fans saw what I could do in the second half of last season and I just want to get out there and show my stuff again next season. I can't wait for pre-season to start. "As soon as I came to Villa I could tell everyone here was hungry for success and last season was just the start." Harewood has been linked with the likes of Fulham, Stoke City and Queens Park Rangers, but still has two years left on his current Villa contract.
