Conor Hourihane signs contract extension

Aston Villa is delighted to announce Conor Hourihane has signed a contract extension ahead of the new Premier League season.

The 28-year old was a crucial part of the side that secured promotion via the Play-Off Final in May, and agrees a fresh deal as we prepare to embark on a top-flight campaign.

Hourihane has completed a remarkable rise as a player from League Two to the Premier League in just five years – competing in every EFL division along the way.

Since joining in January 2017, the Irishman has made 111 Villa appearances and reaffirmed his status as a stellar creative force, scoring 21 goals and assisting 16 times.

On committing his future, he said: "I'm absolutely delighted. It's exciting times for the club with us moving into the Premier League.

"I've waited all my career for the opportunity to play at this level and the time has now arrived.

"I'm really looking forward to the season ahead. It's a big period for me personally as I've come all the way from League Two to reach the top.

"I'm glad to sign and look forward to being here for seasons ahead."
