Villa's Petrov urges Maloney to stay
"If he keeps smiling things will get better. Shaun is my friend but also a player with great quality.
"If you want to make your name sometimes you have to go through hard times.
"It's difficult for Shaun as it's his first time away from home. I know all about that.
"Shaun was a little homesick but I think he has overcome that. I have a part to play in saying to Shaun that he should stick around.
"Coming to a new place is tough but it's part of every player's career."
