Tottenham target Ezri Konsa pens five-year contract with Aston Villa

As confirmed by Sky Sports, Aston Villa defender Ezri Konsa, who had been linked with Tottenham Hotspur, has signed a new five-year deal with the club.

Konsa, 23, rose through the ranks at Charlton Athletic and enjoyed an impressive spell at Bournemouth before joining Aston Villa in the summer of 2019. After a mixed debut campaign at the Villa Park, the centre-back has enjoyed a fine season this time out.

However, both Tottenham and Liverpool are likely to have to call off their pursuit of Konsa as he has now signed a new contract with Aston Villa. The defender’s previous deal was set to run out at the end of the 2022/23 campaign but his has put pen to paper on a new five-year deal, extending his stay at Villa Park till 2026.

“I’m really grateful that the club have rewarded me with a new contract. It’s a great feeling to know the club really believes in you and has trust in you. It’s something I’ve been working towards since I got here, proving myself and playing games week in, week out.”

Konsa has had a solid season thus far, featuring in 26 of Villa’s 28 Premier League games. Young and proven in the Premier League, the 23-year-old could have been a fine addition to the Tottenham squad given that Toby Alderweireld isn’t getting any younger.

However, a move looks very much off the table now that he has committed his long-term future to the club.
