Grealish pens new five-year contract at Villa
Grealish received his first senior call up by Gareth Southgate in September for the Nations League tournament.
Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year contract with Aston Villa, the club has confirmed.
The new agreement will keep the player at Villa Park until 2025.
Grealish has been linked with Manchester United since the Premier League restart following the COVID-19 halt.
United’s interest in Jadon Sancho has overshadowed any possible transfer for the Villa winger who has been with his hometown club since he was eight-years-old and made his claret and blue debut at the end of the 2013/14 season.
He remained with Villa despite relegation in 2016 and was pivotal in our return to the top-flight last year.
The 25-year old received his first senior call up for England this month during the Nations League tournament.
“I am delighted to make this commitment to Villa,” Grealish said.
“It is my club, my home and I am very happy here. The owners have made it very clear to me how ambitious they are and how they want to build Aston Villa. There are exciting times ahead and I am very glad to be part of it,” he added.
He made 36 appearances and scored eight goals last season in the Premier League as he helped Villa to escape relegation.
He has made an overall Premier League appearance of 70 with nine goals.
