Wilfred Bouma is naturally delighted with his new contract, telling the Villa faithful “I will return fitter and stronger than ever.”

As reported earlier, Bouma has signed a new two-year extension, with a view for a 3rd season should things go well, despite the long term injury suffered in Villa`s Inter-Two-Bob cup match against Odense before the start of the league season.

Bouma spoke to the official club website, avfc.co.uk:

‘I am very happy. I’ve signed this new contract when I’m still injured so that shows a lot of faith in me. That has given me a real confidence boost.

‘I have had a set-back but I want to get back playing again as soon as possible.

‘I had to fight to get in the team when I first joined and I am determined to do that again when I come back fit. That’s my goal.

‘I will return fitter and stronger than ever.’

Looking forward to it Wilf!
