Watkins signs new Villa deal


Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins has signed a new, long-term deal at the club.

The 27-year-old, who was yesterday named in the England squad, joined Villa from Brentford in 2020 and has established himself as a key member of Unai Emery’s squad.

Watkins has scored 50 goals for Villa, including two hat-tricks this season.

Villa have enjoyed an encouraging start to the new season. They lie fifth, just three points behind leaders Manchester City.

Emery’s men visit local rivals Wolves on Sunday.
