Manchester United had been interested in a transfer for the Villa captain this summer, but the England international has now committed himself to Villa Park until 2025.

After recently winning his debut England cap, Grealish has declared his delight at committing himself to boyhood club Villa until 2025.

He said In a statement to the club’s official website

“I am delighted to make this commitment to Villa,” he told the club’s website. “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.”

 

Villa CEO Christian Purslow added: “Jack is an emblem of our owner’s vision for Aston Villa. He joined our club as a local boy aged six and has developed into one of the country’s finest players finally becoming a full England international last week.

“We are determined to build a top team around him and are delighted that he is extending his contract and committing himself to the club he loves.

 

Villa might not have started their competitive campaign for the 2020-21 season, but Grealish was called into active duty for England for the first time by Gareth Southgate as he featured for quarter of an hour off the bench in the scoreless Nations League fixture in Denmark on September 8.

 

He will expect to be involved when Dean Smith’s side begin their Premier League calendar with a home fixture against Sheffield United on September 21, while the Villans will be in Carabao Cup action on Tuesday as they travel to League 1 side Burton Albion.
