The Danish international is out of contract in the summer and could leave on a Bosman transfer, but the former AC Milan player has indicated a desire to stay if his "reasonable" demands are deemed acceptable by Villa.
The 30-year-old said: "There is going to be a meeting in the middle of next week and we will see what that will bring. But it is not a secret that I like it here. I would like to stay at Villa. I feel settled outside the pitch as well. I really enjoy staying here and have a good relationship with the manager and everyone around the club."
