Aston Villa captain Grealish signs new five-year deal


Team captain Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal to extend his stay at Villa Park until 2025, English Premier League (EPL) club side Aston Villa said on Tuesday.

England midfielder Grealish has been linked with a move to Manchester United during the transfer window by British media.

“It is my club, my home and I am very happy here,” the 25-year-old Grealish said in a statement.
