Agbonlahor would relish armband

The 24-year-old forward is a boyhood Villa supporter and pledged

his long-term future to the club earlier this season when he signed

a deal until 2015. Agbonlahor has already made more than 200

appearances for the club but is hoping he can fulfil his childhood

dream and wear the captain’s armband. “I’m committed to the club

and that’s why I signed a new contract,” he told the Birmingham

Mail. “Aston Villa means everything really. When you see other

players that are linked with other clubs you don’t really see my

name linked with anywhere else. Other clubs know that this is where

I want to play my football. “It would be nice to get the armband in

a one-off game or to be the regular captain, but that’s not really

on my mind at the moment – maybe one day in the future.”
