Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert says he's not in any rush to discuss new terms.

He joked that he would not broach the subject of extending his stay with the board until a day before his current agreement is up.

“Talks to extend my stay?” Lambert told the Birmingham Mail. “No because I’ve got this year and one more. It’s a long time still to go.

“Randy and Paul have always been really honest with us. I get on really well with them. We’ll just see what happens later on. There’s never any great rush. I think there’s more important things than my own situation.

“I don’t really like to talk about myself or anything like that. The most important thing is this club and this team. My situation will take care of itself whenever that’s going to be.

“I’ve never thought about it. I’ve got three years here. I don’t think I’m that important to really worry about. What will happen, will happen.

“I’ll probably talk about it the last day before it finishes – then I’ll start to worry! I don’t get caught up in it. I never think about it like that. I’ve never been like that.

“I think people think we’ve been here for about four or five years. We haven’t. We’ve only been here just over a season. It’s not long.

“We’ll try and keep building it and it will take a right few years to get to where we want to get to. We’ve had to strip it right back.”
