At Aston Villa, a new five-year deal has been signed by the captain Jack Grealish.
Until 2025, England International has now devoted himself to the side of Villa Park.
In the early weeks of the summer, he was linked to join Manchester United.
Grealish said in a statement on the official website of the club: “I am pleased to bring this commitment to Villa. It’s my place, it’s my home and I’m just happy here. The owners made it very clear to me how excited they are to build Aston Villa and how they intend to. Exciting days are coming and I’m very proud to be part of it.”
CEO Christian Purslow added: “Jack is a symbol in the imagination of Aston Villa’s Owner. As a local boy aged six, he joined our Club and grew into one of the finest players in the world, eventually becoming a full England international last week.”
“We’re eager to build a top team around him and we’re pleased to see him extend his contract! And to belong to the club which he enjoys.”
