Everton target Sidwell happy with new Villa deal

Aston Villa have handed Steve Sidwell a new contract.

The News of the World says Sidwell has a clause in his contract which kicked in after 15 appearances for the club this season.

Former Reading star Sidwell, who earned £50,000 a week when he spent a season at Chelsea, is now on similar terms at Villa Park. The hard-working midfielder has been on the bench since the 1-1 draw at Burnley last month.

Everton maintain a long-standing interest, but Sidwell has no intention of leaving a team on an upward curve.
