Jack Grealish has signed a new four-year contract with Aston Villa, it was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon.

The club announced on their official Twitter account that midfielder Grealish has penned a new contract until 2020.

The 20-year-old has been in fine form for manager Roberto Di Matteo this season, scoring two goals in five Championship appearances.

Grealish, who came through the Villa academy, was given his debut by then-manager Paul Lambert against Manchester City in 2014.

He has made 52 appearances in all competitions for his boyhood club but suffered the disappointment of relegation last season.

Di Matteo will be hoping Grealish can inspire his side to get straight back to the Premier League this campaign, although Villa have got off to a stuttering start, with just one win from their first five games.

Birmingham-born Grealish switched allegiances last season, as the former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international opted to play for the country of his birth instead.

The now England Under-21 international has made four appearances for Gareth Southgate’s side scoring two goals.
