Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert hopes to secure Andi Weimann to a new deal.
Negotiations may not be settled until the end of the season with Villa in danger of being relegated — but Weimann, 21, is keen to stay.
Lambert said: “It would be great if Andreas signs. We’re still talking.
“He has been really on top of his game and taken his chance in the first team.”
Weimann added: “I’ve always been happy here.”
