'My God', 'Literally shouted out in joy' - Aston Villa fans react to club announcement

By Richard Parks

Aston Villa have announced that Andre Green has signed a new contract – and fans have taken to Twitter to express their delight.

Villa announced on their official website and social media channels on Friday that the winger, 19, has been handed a new deal that runs until the summer of 2020.

The wide man has had an injury-hit season with a serious hamstring problem sustained in September keeping him out of action for three months.

Green has since returned to play just once for the senior side, completing 45 minutes in their 3-1 loss in the FA Cup third round to Peterborough.

The winger has not played a league match since September and has made just eight appearances in all competitions, partly due to his injury problems.
