Stephen Ireland is targeting a new deal with Aston Villa.
Settled at Villa, the midfielder admits that under manager Paul Lambert he is finally â€śgetting a fair crack at thingsâ€ť â€“ and he hopes his displays can earn him a new deal.
He told the Mirror: â€śI still have 18 months on my contract left. Iâ€™m hoping my performances will get me a sit down.
â€śWe havenâ€™t had any sit down or chat yet but itâ€™s obviously Âunderstandable as itâ€™s still early days.â€ť
