Aston Villa have announced that Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year contract with the club.

The new deal will see the 25-year-old club captain remain at Villa Park until 2025.

Grealish had been linked with a move away this summer but announced through the club's social media that he is staying.

Villa avoided relegation from the Premier League on the final day of last season with Grealish scoring in the 1-1 draw at West Ham.

The former Republic of Ireland under-21 international has been with his hometown club since he was eight-years-old and made his debut at the end of the 2013/14 season.

Grealish scored 10 goals in 41 games last season and made his England debut last week when he came on during a 0-0 draw away to Denmark in the Nations League.

Grealish said: "I am delighted to make this commitment to Villa. 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 said: "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."
