Villa in contract talks with Mellberg - O'Neill

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill is confident of sealing a new deal for Olof Mellberg.

The Sweden international, who has been at Villa for six years, is in the final year of his current deal.

But O'Neill has held talks with Mellberg's agent and believes a new deal will be agreed with the 30-year-old centre-back.

O'Neill said: "We have been liaising with Olof's agent regarding a new contract and I would hope to rectify that situation in the not-too-distant future."
