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

“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.

Grealish, a Villa academy graduate, made his senior debut in 2014 and scored eight goals in 36 league appearances to help the club secure top flight survival last season.

“We are determined to build a top team around him and (we are) delighted that he is extending his contract and committing himself to the club he loves,” Villa CEO Christian Purslow said.
