England midfielder Fabian Delph has signed a new four-and-a-half year deal with Aston Villa FC.
Delph, who originally joined the club in 2009 from Leeds United, has extended his contract until June 2019.
The 25-year-old, who won player of the season from both fans and players, couldn't have been happier to commit his future to the claret and blues.
Delph said: "The club has given me a great platform to perform and a great opportunity to showcase what I can do.
"The fans have been great with me, the chairman has been absolutely fantastic with me and I have a great relationship with the manager and I see the boys here as my brothers, my family and I am delighted to stay here.
"I feel like this is me - I love the club, I love being here and I want to put 100% into everything I do here. That's why I am committing my future.
"There was no way I was going to bail out. I am here for the long run."
Villa manager Paul Lambert said the deal was unexpected but welcome news.
