Sammy Carruthers, Michael Drennan and Graham Burke have all signed signed new two year deals.

The trio have come up through the Academy and played their parts in our successful NextGen European win last season.

Speaking to the Official Site Sammy said.

‘It’s great for me to commit my future to Villa where I’ve grown to this point in my career and hope to progress further. Now I’ve just got to try and work hard and try and get into the first team. Nearly isn’t good enough, you have to go for it.’

Burke, the top scorer (7 goals) in the NextGen Series added.

‘This year I’m hoping to push on in the first team. I got a taste for it last year, coming on in two games. The aim this year is to play more and hopefully I can achieve that.’

Almost NextGen top scorer (6 goals, 6 games) until he unfortunately suffered an injury in the quarter finals?, Micky Drennan said that he hoped to follow in the footsteps of Andi Weimann.

‘He’s done really well for himself. He’s an international, starting for his country and he’s a regular for Villa as well. He went out on loan and came back and proved himself, if I have to go out on loan I’m prepared to do that. Hopefully I can push on now, get myself into the gaffer’s thoughts, that’s my aim.’

Good to see us tying them down, and you’d hope Burke and Drennan get a good loan spell this summer, Sammy should be pushing for the first team and you’d expect him to figure in pre season.
