Former Republic of Ireland under-21 midfielder Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Premier League Aston Villa.

Grealish made six appearances for the Irish under-21s before he switched international allegiances to England in 2015.

The 25-year-old made his senior international debut for the Three Lions against Denmark last week.

The attacking midfielder made his senior Villa debut in 2014 and has since re-affirmed his commitment to the club.

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

“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.”

Club 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.”
