Delaney's new deal
Aston Villa want Mark Delaney to play the rest of his career at Villa
Delaney was a non-league player three years ago
Aston Villa have offered Mark Delaney a new contract that will tie the defender to Villa Park until the summer of 2005.

Delaney, who only signed an improved contract 18 months ago, is currently injured and will be out until the New Year.

But Villa want to reward the defender for his good form at right-back this season prior to his injury.

Talks have taken place between the club, the player and his agent.

Just three years ago the defender was playing non-league football for Carmarthen Town.

"This offer substantially increases his wages over the four-year deal he signed in July 2000 and potentially extends his contract to June 2005 when he will be 29," said Villa financial director Mark Ansell.

"Though Mark has yet to agree this new contract offer, his agent has indicated that Mark does want to see out his career playing for Aston Villa."
