Aston Villa defender Nathan Baker has agreed a new three-year contract, the club have confirmed.
The 20-year-old made his first-team debut last season in the 2-1 away win over Wigan in the Barclays Premier League. But he was sent off in the FA Cup tie with Blackburn and then had to be substituted suffering from concussion in the league game between the two sides.
Baker said: "I am over the moon. I only had a year left (of my contract) so to extend my association with Villa is fantastic. I am really happy."
