This afternoon Aston Villa have confirmed that 23-year-old talent Jack Grealish has now signed a new five-year contract at the club.

Having been with us since he was eight years old and having worked his way through our youth and Academy set up, Jack is now one of the first names on the team sheet in recognition of his development and whilst he still has improvements to make and he has off days, nobody can deny how important he is to us when he’s on song.

Following the takeover by Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens, with speculated interest from Tottenham Hotspur, one marker was keeping him despite Financial Fair Play issues – this contract is a massive second statement of intent and fans will be hoping, the first of many more to come.

Clearly, the excitement got to some on social media.

There were definitely plenty more comments and it seems the announcement has made plenty of people’s day given the weekend disappointment on the pitch. With the contract out the way, fingers crossed Jack takes that boost and kicks on even further this year as we need him on top form!
