Johnson signs new Villa deal

13 June 2013 14:51

Young Aston Villa midfielder Daniel Johnson has signed a new two-year contract with the Premier League club.

The highly rated 20-year-old has been a member of Villa's academy since 2010 and has captained several youth teams since.

Johnson – who was born in Jamaica – spent some time on loan at Yeovil Town in League One last season, making five appearances.

He now hopes to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Andreas Weimann, Ciaran Clark and Nathan Baker, who have graduated from the academy and into the first team.

Johnson told Villa's official website: "I'm really happy to have signed the new contract.

"These are exciting times at the club at the moment…I'm really looking forward to come back into training and I'm hope that this year can be even better for me and for the team.

"Having guys like Andi (Weimann), Ciaran and Nathan get into the first team is definitely an inspiration because they've been in the position I'm in.

"They kicked on and they got into the team and look at them now, they're Premier League players. That's obviously where I want to be."

Johnson has been included in several of Villa's matchday squads but is yet to make his first-team debut for the club.
