Andreas Weimann admitted that the "feeling of being at home here at Aston Villa" and the "potential within this young, exciting team" helped persuade him to put pen to paper on a new three-year deal which will run to 2016.

The 21-year-old Austrian international forward also acknowledged that he "owes the manager and the club" having been trusted by Paul Lambert to play in 38 games in all competitions in his breakthrough season in 2012-13.

"I'm really happy that I've signed. I love the club and it's been brilliant for me, for I have a feeling of being at home here at Aston Villa," Weimann said.

"I've been here for six seasons now, having started with the Academy in 2006, and last season was tremendous for me and terrific for the team the way we played over the second half of a really demanding campaign.

"On a personal level, I didn't expect at the start of the season that it would go the way it did, with me being involved and starting games almost the whole of the way through."

Weimann signed for Villa aged 15, having started his career at Rapid Vienna.

Weimann went on two loan spells to Watford, making 22 appearances in all and scoring four goals.

He made his debut against West Ham United in August 2010, coming on as a substitute to replace Ashley Young.

However, his progress was halted when he sustained an ankle injury in a Europa League game against his former club Rapid Vienna. Weimann continued to make strides in the first team in the latter half of the 2011-12 season.

After scoring two hat-tricks for the reserves and following the season-ending injury to Darren Bent, Weimann came on for Charles N'Zogbia against Fulham in March 2012.

He scored a last-minute winner, bundling the ball into the net following a Gary Gardner shot.

He scored again against Stoke at Villa Park with a goal that was voted Villa's goal of the season.

The 2012-13 season saw Weimann become a first team regular, appearing in 38 games in all competitions and scoring 12 goals including a brace against eventual champions Manchester United and a goal against Liverpool that was runner-up in the Club's goal of the season competition.

Weimann has also made the step up to international football, having appeared six times for Austria.
