Andreas Weimann has signed a new three-year contract with Aston Villa to extend his stay in the Premier League.

The striker joined Villa as a youth in 2007 and since then has played for the first team 57 times finding the net on 14 occasions.

The deal means the 21-year-old is now tied to the club until 2016.

Weimann told the Aston Villa official website: "I'm really happy that I've signed. I love the Club and it's been brilliant for me, for I have a feeling of being at home here at Aston Villa.

"Like the other young players in the team, I want to keep improving as a player and keep pushing Villa as high as we can in the Premier League."

Weimann follows the lead of another of Villa's promising youngsters after Nathan Baker also signed a new three-year contract last week.

The Austrian joined Aston Villa from Rapid Vienna at the age of 15 but he has also made six appearances for his country.

He made his Villa debut in August 2010, at the age of 19 when he came on as a late substitute against West Ham. 

Aston Villa have loaned the young striker to Watford on two occasions where he made 22 appearances in total, scoring four times.
