Man Utd handed massive blow in their pursuit of PL No.10 midfielder
England international playmaker Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year contract with Aston Villa to end rumours over his future.
The 25-year-old had been rumoured with a move away from his team =this summer, with the Red Devils most heavily credited with an interest in his services.
However, the skipper has now put pen to paper on a new long-term deal which will keep him at the club until 2025 and move to Old Trafford has been colapsed in the nearby future.
“I am delighted to make this commitment to Villa. It is my club, my home and I am very happy here,” Grealish told the club’s official website.
“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.”
Grealish has been with Premier League outfits since he was six years old and has been on of the key players for the club in both championship and English top-tier.
The English playmaker was instrumental in keeping Aston Villa in the English top-tier last campaign and was rewarded for his form with a maiden England cap earlier this month.
