Villa to offer new deal to star Petrov
Stiliyan Petrov could sign a contract extension at Aston Villa within the next fortnight, according to manager Martin O’Neill.
O’Neill believes the 29-year-old has been key to the club’s good form, which has seen them launch an unlikely Champions League qualification assault and is keen to extend Petrov’s contract, which has 18 months left to run.
"We will be dealing with it the minute the transfer window is over," O’Neill said.
"He is playing great. I have the utmost regard for him because he has fought back from a really difficult situation.”
