Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has signed a new four-year contract with the Midlands club.

The England U21 international, who turns 21-years-old on the weekend, has committed his future until the summer of 2020.

He says he's "thrilled" at the signing and it looking forward to bringing success to the team in the next few years.

Everyone knows this is a Club I love dearly – and it’s the place I want to play my football.

Bodymoor Heath provides a great environment in which to continue my football education and to call Villa Park home is something I will never take for granted.

We’re looking to return to the Premier League. I want to be a big part of that process and will be doing everything possible to make that a reality.
