Premier League side Aston Villa confirmed some wholly positive news on the players’ contract front on Monday.
The member of the Steven Gerrard ranks who made a long-term commitment to Claret and Blue? Matty Cash.
Of course, the Cash fullback is in the midst of a good campaign to date. In appearances in Villa’s 30 Premier League games, the Polish international has shone, establishing himself as one of the top names on the West Midlands team sheet.
Cash’s exploits in the attacking third have proven particularly impressive, as the 24-year-old racked up a remarkable three goals and four assists in all competitions in 2021/22.
In turn, the news that Villa, tonight, managed to tie down their star stopper for the foreseeable future will no doubt be greeted with jubilation from the club’s fan base.
According to an announcement on Villans’ social media platforms, Cash “has signed a contract extension with the club”:

Meanwhile, the former Nottingham Forest star has provided more information on the situation, confirming that his new terms will run until the summer of 2027:
Delighted to extend my stay here at Aston Villa for another 5 years. I love my time here and can’t wait to continue this exciting journey. Thanks to gaffa and everyone at the club for giving me this opportunity and especially to you fans for the continued support 💜💜 UTV pic.twitter.com/pVh0TV8sCN

the wolves triumph
The news of Cash’s renewal, of course, comes after another disappointing weekend for Steven Gerrard’s Villa.
This comes after Claret and Blue made the trip to Molineux in search of a much-needed comeback performance, after seeing a three-fight win streak firmly ended courtesy of back-to-back losses at the hands of West. Ham and Arsenal prior to the international break.
However, when all was said and done in the Midlands derby, Villa was ultimately forced to face a third Premier League defeat on the rebound.
Although Ollie Watkins managed to win one back late, Ashley Young added to Jonny’s first goal courtesy of an own goal shortly after the half-hour mark, ensuring that all three points, in the end, went to the Wolves.
