Ezri Konsa has put pen to paper on a contract extension with Aston Villa that may end on the end of the 2025/26 season.
The 23-year-old has appeared in 26 of Villa’s 28 Premier League video games this season, forming a powerful partnership with Tyrone Mings and serving to the membership preserve 14 clear sheets within the league to this point.
“I am very grateful that the membership has rewarded me with a new contract,” said Konsa on the membership’s web site.

“It is a great feeling realizing that the membership really believes in you and trusts you.
“It is one thing I have been working in the direction of since I acquired right here, prove myself and play video games week in, week out.”
Konsa, a former England Under-20 World Cup winner, joined Villa from Brentford in 2019 and has gone on to make 58 appearances in all competitions.
This season Konsa has moved up a level as Villa try to hold on to its place within the top half of the table over the final weeks of the marketing campaign.
“It has been an excellent season for us, particularly the lads on the back with the dimensions of the clear sheets – just one away from matching the clear sheet document for Aston Villa,” he added.
“We have now great chemistry on the back, together with (goalkeeper) Emiliano Martinez. For me personally, it has been an excellent season, each for my requirements and what I needed to realize this season.
“I am very pleased with what I and the boys have achieved this season.”
