Aston Villa is pleased to announce Dean Smith has signed a new four-year contract.

Dean, who joined as Head Coach in October 2018, successfully led the club back to the Premier League at the first time of asking thanks to a 2-1 victory over Derby County in the Play-Off Final at Wembley in May.

The new deal, which runs until 2023, will see Dean continue an association with Aston Villa that stretches back to his childhood as a supporter on the Holte End.

Smith said: “I’m really happy to have committed my long term future to the Club. I’m looking forward to all the challenges that come with re-establishing Aston Villa as a top Premier League club.”

Christian Purslow, CEO, added: “The Board is delighted that Dean has signed a new four-year contract which puts him at the heart of the Club’s long term rebuilding plans.”
