American fullback Eric Lichaj has signed a new contract with Aston Villa.
Lichaj hopes to forge a successful career for club and country after penning a new three-year contract at Villa.
"I'm delighted to be staying at a great club," he told Villa's website. "I now have a better opportunity to get into the first team.
"Hopefully I can help the team to get better than sixth, where they have finished in the past couple of years. But we'll just have to wait and see.
"Hopefully when I start playing here I can get into the USA team. That would be nice."
