Gabby Agbonlahor has signed a new deal at Aston Villa, which will keep him at the club until 2018.

Gabby Agbonlahor has been pictured smiling as he signs a new four-year deal at Aston Villa. 

The pacey frontman has spent his entire career at Villa Park to date and he is now set to stay at the club until  he is at least 31. 

Agbonlahor came up through the youth ranks at Villa and he has gone on to make 320 appearances in all competitions for the club. 

He has impressed enough to earn international recognition, too, and has been capped by England three times throughout his career.

Blessed with great pace, Agbonlahor is a threat against every defence in the league and his commitment to the club is sure to have been welcomed by supporters today.

It is another piece of good news in what has been a very positive start to the campaign for Paul Lambert's side.

Villa are near the top of the league, after remaining unbeaten through the first three games of the competitive season, and they will now be looking to build on this opening.

The Midlands club take on Liverpool at the weekend and they will be aiming to cause an upset, with Agbonlahor sure to be aiming to celebrate his new deal with a goal.
