Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor believes he will become a one-club player like Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard after signing a new four-and-a-half year contract.

Agbonlahor has committed himself to Villa until at least the summer of 2015 and has hinted he will be happy to remain with the midlands club for the remainder of his career.

"It's nice to pledge my long-term future to the club," he said. "I am happy to commit to the club. Hopefully I can progress and keep improving on what I've done so far. I am happy to keep playing for the club."

He added: "I'm delighted to carry on and sign this new contract. I am happy and I just want to keep on playing for Villa.

"It's my childhood club. It's the club I support and love and I just want to keep playing and improving year on year.

"If you look at other clubs - the likes of Steven Gerrard with Liverpool, you can't see him playing anywhere else.

"It's the same with me. I can't really see myself playing at any other club.

"It's the club I love and I'm happy. I am happy they have offered me this contract that keeps me here for a long time into the future."
