Delph, 21 arrived at Villa Park in 2009 after a string of impressive performances for Leeds United but has found his chances more limited having recently being hampered by a long-term knee injury that kept him out of action for eight months.
He has recently returned to the Fray following his rehabillition and recently came off the bench to replace defender Nathan Baker at left-back in Villa’s emphatic 4-1 win over Blackburn and continued in the same role for Wednesday’s FA Cup loss at Manchester City.
“I am absolutely delighted. The club has shown great commitment in me by offering me this deal and I was more than happy to sign it,” said Delph.
“I want to push on now, improve and play a part as we look to finish the season on a high and build for next season.”
Villa boss Gerard Houllier was quick to sing the young midfielder’s praises and spoke about his long-term future at the club.
“We are very confident he will become a very good player for Aston Villa. The fact he signed the contract means he trusts us too,” the Frenchman said today.
