Paul Lambert has signed a new four-year contract that will keep him at Villa Park until June 2018, Premier League club Aston Villa have announced.

The ex-Scotland international midfielder succeeded Alex McLeish in June 2012 and helped the Midlands club avoid relegation in his first two seasons.

“I’m determined that we continue building the club to where we all want it to be,” Lambert said in a statement on Villa’s official Twitter feed.

“This is a massive football club, a fantastic football club. We can look to the future with real optimism and a determination to make this season successful, and the seasons that follow.”

The 45-year-old won the UEFA Champions League with Borussia Dortmund in 1997 and ending his playing career in 2005. His managerial experience includes spells with Livingston, Wycombe Wanderers, Colchester United and Norwich City.

Aston Villa has had a decent start to the 2014-15 league campaign, recording ten points from their first four fixtures; including the 1-0 win at Liverpool on Saturday.

“I am delighted that we have extended manager Paul Lambert’s contract to the end of the 2017/18 season,” said Villa’s newly appointed chief executive Tom Fox.

“Paul and (owner) Randy (Lerner) had been in discussions regarding this move when I came on board and we concluded our agreement last week.”
