Confirmed: Key Aston Villa man signs contract extension

Aston Villa defender Ahmed Elmohamady has signed a one-year contract extension with the club.

The 31-year-old joined from Hull City in 2017 and made 41 appearances last term as Villa won promotion to the Premier League.

The Egypt international – who has appeared 89 times for the Villains so far – has started Villa’s two league games this term.

Dean Smith’s side currently sit one point above the relegation zone, however, after losing both their opening fixtures.

The club briefly led Tottenham Hotspur on the opening weekend before Spurs ran out 3-1 winners, while Smith’s side were defeated 2-1 by Bournemouth last time out.

Villa added eight new recruits to their squad ahead of their return to the top flight – including Matt Targett from Southampton and Tyrone Mings from Bournemouth – spending close to £80m in the process.
