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!

  • The team now needs a new spark, via a new manager, who can give it a identity of play.

  • Been a supporter now for 60 odd years, been there done it, great news about Jack now get rid of Bruce and make my day complete.

  • What a waste of money unless he is coached and managed by someone who will make the most of his undoubted skills. I first started watching him when he was at loan to Notts County. If you look at the way he played then it makes him look pedestrian now. If the new owners aren’t going to get shot of Bruce they may as well sell to highest bidder in January and save us from a points deduction next season when we will still be in this division. And Bruce is whinging about the situation and not being able to buy more players he won’t play!! ahhhhhhhh

  • I remember when arsenal wanted gabby. I think 25 mil for him was a good price. He is a midfielder. Where are the goals and assists???? Just hope he flourishes and the money don’t kill his talent.

  • A new deal was always inevitable for Grealish, once the club fended off Tottenham’s advances. Clearly, the player has a high level of skill and talent, but he does need to find more end product, particularly in the position he usually plays.

    In many respects, it is not easy to find the best system to support him, once you add in two wingers and McGinn into the equation. This is more evident against sides with very effective midfields that are both quick and aggressive. At home we can usually cope with one defensive midfielder, although I think both Jedinak and Whelan arr too slow now. Away from home, against stronger sides, I do wonder if the balance is wrong at times.

    No doubt SB has this all in hand as part of his master plan…..
