Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill is keen to open talks with defender Martin Laursen about a potential new contract.
The 30-year-old Danish international is in the final year of his current deal and is set to begin negotiations after next week's Euro 2008 qualifiers.
"If Martin was 22 with that sort of attitude you'd be looking at giving him 10 years," he told Villa's website.
"He's proving himself here and I've got absolutely no problems sitting down and discussing the future with him."
