Villa fans react on Twitter after Ciaran Clark signs new deal

The Aston Villa centre-back has put pen to paper on a new five-year deal.

Aston Villa defender Ciaran Clark has become the latest player to sign a new contract at the club, which is great news for those fans that saw the 25-year-old excel last season.

Clark played 29 matches for Villa before a twisted knee brought his campaign to a premature end.

But that was not before he had proved to be a vital part of manager Tim Sherwood’s back-line and he should continue that great form heading into the new season.

The competitive action kicks off this weekend and Villa have a number of new faces to integrate into their squad.

The likes of Jordan Amavi and Idrissa Gueye have already impressed during pre-season and in time Villa could have one of the most entertaining sides in the top flight.

Clark will have a vital role to play in that and following the news that he has signed a new five-year deal at Villa Park we took to Twitter to see what fans made of the news.
