No new contract offer yet from Aston Villa, says Carlos Cuellar
Wednesday 07 March 2012
Aston Villa defender Carlos Cuellar says he has still not received a new contract offer from the midlands club.
Cuellar, whose current deal expires this summer, has been holding talks with Villa over his future.
But the Spaniard, in impressive form in recent weeks, confirmed no concrete proposal has so far been put forward by Villa.
He said: "Has there been an offer? No, there has been no offer yet. I am relaxed about it, I am fine.
"If they want me to stay here, it will be easy. I am happy here at Villa, I would like to stay.
"If not, if my contract is finished I will have to say 'thank you, goodbye, it was a pleasure to be here, and I am grateful for the last four years.'
"In football it sometimes happens, it's alright."
Cuellar, signed from Rangers for £8 million, is prepared to give Villa every opportunity to re-sign him.
He said: "Because I'm in my last year, from January I could speak to other teams, even sign if I wanted.
