Aston Villa captain, Jack Grealish, has signed a new five-year contract with the club.

Grealish was heavily linked with a move away from the Midlands club this summer.

Manchester United and Arsenal were particularly believed to be interested in the 24-year-old.

Grealish’s new deal contains a significant pay rise and also contains a bigger buy-out clause than his previous contract.

The midfielder broke through the youth ranks in 2014 and stayed at Villa Park despite relegation to the Championship in 2016.

He played a key role in their return to the Premier League in 2019.

“I am delighted to make this commitment to Villa,” Grealish said.
