Aston Villa: Baker signs new contract

Nathan Baker has signed a new three year contract with Aston Villa, keeping him with the club until 2016.

The 22-year-old centre half played 30 times for Villa last season, adding to the 13 appearances he had made previously. He was a key part of the Aston Villa defence that helped keep them in the Premier League.

Born in Worcester, the defender, who can also play at left back, is a product of the club's academy, and has three caps for the England under 21 side.
