Weimann future in doubt after contract rejection

Aston Villa forward Andreas WeimannAston Villa attacker Andreas Weimann’s future has been plunged into doubt, after the youngster rejected a new deal from the club, according to reports from The Mirror.

The Austrian starlet has been one of the Villains’ bright sparks in an otherwise disappointing Premier League season so far.

With 18-months left on his current deal, the Midlanders believed that they could wrap up an extension early, but the player has turned down their offer.

Weimann currently earns an estimated £15,000-per-week, but sources claim that he was “disappointed” by the terms put forward by the relegation strugglers.

The 21-year-old is said to be happy at the club, but would prefer to negotiate his future this summer.

In doing this he could open the door for a move, with many clubs likely to be keen to take advantage of the ticking clock on his contract.

Should Villa be relegated he could also maintain a spot in the top tier, with many sides rumoured to have been impressed by the youngster.

Talks are still said to be on-going, and Villa chief Paul Lambert played down the seriousness of the situation:

“We’re still talking at the minute and seeing how it’s gone on.”

Weimann has netted ten goals in all competitions this season.
