Houllier is hoping to make a big impact with Villa
Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier has finally signed his three-year contract at the club.
The Frenchman agreed to take over from Martin O'Neill on 8 September and was in charge for the Carling Cup win over Blackburn on Wednesday.
He revealed earlier this week that he had shaken hands with club owner Randy Lerner on the contract and that signing it was merely a formality.
But the 63-year-old has now signed until the end of the 2012-13 season.
Houllier, who left his role as technical director with the French Football Federation to take over at Villa Park, will take charge of his first Premier League game since May 2004 when Villa face Wolves at Molineux on Sunday.
