Aston Villa have held initial discussions with striker Andreas Weimann over a new contract, Press Association Sport understands.

Weimann has 18 months left of his current deal and Villa are hoping to secure the long-term future of the Austria international.

The 21-year-old broke into the first team last season and scored a vital injury-time winner against Fulham as the midlands club stayed up by only two points, but it is during the current campaign that he has made a sustained impact and is their second top scorer with nine goals.
