Aston Villa front man Gabriel Agbonlahor has committed his long-term future to the Premier League strugglers and says that he wants to finish his career at Villa Park if possible, according to reports in the Birmingham Mail.

The former England international has been in the west Midlands for his entire career to date, making him currently the club’s longest-serving player after having appeared in a total of 295 matches for Villa since making his debut in March 2006 under then head coach David O’Leary.

And with a contract at the club that now now only runs until June 2015, questions have recently been asked about when the 27-year-old will be sitting down to discuss a new deal with his employers.

However, the Englishman is not too concerned, saying: “But I’ve still got a year-and-a-half left, which is a long time in football, and you leave things until the right time. It’s about playing football at the moment.

“It is hard in this league to be a one-club man but it’s always been on my mind to play for Villa until I retire. It feels weird even thinking about putting another shirt on.”
