Laursen hopes for Villa deal

21 Sep 2007 - 10:13:14

Aston Villa defender Martin Laursen is keen to commit his long-term future to the club by agreeing a new contract.

The injury-plagued Denmark international has not missed a Premier League game this season, but is out of contract at the end of the current campaign.

But the 30-year-old former AC Milan and Parma defender is hoping to avoid fresh injury problems in a bid to persuade Villa boss Martin O'Neill to hand him a new deal.

Laursen has already held preliminary talks with O'Neill about extending his three-year stay in the Midlands.

"I would like to stay here. I feel good, but nothing has happened yet," he told the club's official website.

"I don't think I will make a four-year contract. But I hope to make a two or a three-year (contract) if they want me here.

"We had a quick chat just before the season ended. He said he was happy with me and I told him that I am happy here as well.

"I like to play here. I like to play in England. It suits my game very much, so yes, we can talk about that.

"Yes, I don't have a perfect knee but I am fit now and I am playing now - so I don't think it will have to be written into a contract."
