Emery signs new five-year deal at Villa

 Unai Emery has signed a new long-term contract at Aston Villa following their fourth place finish in the Premier League.

Emery, 52, has put pen to paper on a new five-year-deal at Villa Park after securing a spot in next season's Champions League. The deal commits him to the West Midlands club until 2029, after initially arriving in the Second City back in 2022 as Steven Gerrard's successor

Speaking in a statement released by the club, Emery said: “I am very happy to take this step and the responsibility of leading this club. Since I came to Villa with Wes and Nassef we found always the best environment and structure to develop a project with the highest ambition. All the football structure with Monchi and Damian and the owners, we share the same vision and same goals. There’s a great chemistry in Aston Villa. And the element of the fans’ support also makes the difference to feel like home. We are really excited to continue this journey with no limits to our dreams.”
