Aston Villa have confirmed that their current manager Paul Lambert has signed a new deal with the Midlands club.
His contract there will last until June 2018.
With the Scot being in talks with Villa as early as February, an agreement has finally been finalised with owner Randy Lerner last week.
“I’m determined that we continue building the club to where we all want it to be,” Lambert said.
“This is a massive football club, a fantastic football club. We can look to the future with real optimism and a determination to make this season successful, and the seasons that follows.”
