Mile Jedinak has taken to Instagram to send an emotional message to Aston Villa fans, as he leaves the club.

The 34-year-old defensive midfielder has praised the Villa fans and is proud to have been associated with the Villans.

 

Villa have announced on their official website that Jedinak, who can also operate as a central defender, is among eight players who have been released.

The Australian midfielder is out of contract at Villa this summer, and the Villans, who will play in the Premier League next season after winning promotion from the Championship, have decided not to hand him a new contract.

Good player for Aston Villa

Jedinak joined Villa from Crystal Palace in the summer of 2016 for a transfer fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £4 million and when Roberto Di Matteo was in charge of the Villans.

The defensive midfielder played well for the Villans over the past three years, and he was also deployed as a central defender at times this season.
