Jack Grealish looked delighted to sign a new contract at Aston Villa today.

Jack Grealish has signed a new four-year deal with Aston Villa.

The youngster has put pen to paper on a long-term contract at Villa Park, reportedly worth £20,000-a-week.

It is a move which should end the speculation surrounding the 19-year-old's future. 

The likes of Chelsea and Manchester United had been linked with making a move for Grealish, but his commitment to Villa was made obvious today.

The Irish born winger is on the verge of receiving a regular first-team place and he is obviously hopeful for his future at the club.

So far the tricky wide-man has had to make do with a number of substitute appearances, but he is expected to make the breakthrough by the end of the season.

Grealish is tipped to have the talent to become the best academy player to come through at Villa Park in recent memory and the hope is that he will fulfil his potential now his future is sorted.

Grealish, himself, was delighted to have signed a new deal at his boyhood club and will now be looking to kick on. 

"I'm delighted and it's a dream come true to commit my future to my boyhood club," he said.

"I've had a season ticket at Villa since I was four years old and came to every game,so this is a big thing for me and my family."
