Young Aston Villa midfielder Daniel Johnson has signed a new two-year contract with the club.

Aston Villa have announced that Daniel Johnson has signed a new two-year contract with the club. The 20 year old midfielder has been with the Villa academy since 2010, captaining the side at both the U18 and U19 level. Although Johnson was included in a few match-day squads last season, he has yet to make his full debut with Villa. He did play five games while on loan with Yeovil Town, however.

It's always great to have Villa youth sign on for more time at the club -- the Academy is one of the best in England and most recently, it's produced the likes of Nathan Baker, Andi Weimann, and, of course, Gabby Agbonlahor. As for Johnson, he looked great in the 2011-2012 NextGen series, scoring three goals while leading the squad to the quarter-finals. This year's U21 squad finished second in their group, behind Everton.

Congrats, Daniel, and we look forward to watching your game progress!
