Picture: Jack Grealish signs 5-year Aston Villa contract to end Man United speculation

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

The new deal sees the 25-year-old commit his long-term future to his boyhood club, keeping him at Villa Park until 2025.

It should put an end to the speculation over Grealish joining Manchester United.

A deal never looked likely once United signed Donny van de Beek from Ajax.

The Dutch midfielder cost Β£35m, as per BBC Sport, but Grealish would have cost near double that (via Sky Sports).

Check out the announcement below, as well as a picture of Grealish after putting pen to paper:

It’s great news for Villa and I doubt there were many clubs looking to splash the cash on Grealish this summer.

COVID-19 has definitely affected the transfer market financially as we expected it would.

Grealish will hope he can help Villa retain their Premier League status again this term.
