Jack Grealish has signed a new contract with Aston Villa that will see him stays with the club for five years until 2023. This will be a bad news for Tottenham Hotspurs that were pursuing the player during the last transfer window and was looking to sign the player on a cheaper deal.
He said that Aston Villa has a clear plan to get promotion from the Championship and that they believe that they will have to hold on to their best players if they want to achieve that. He said that they have made a relatively good start to their season and that they want to make sure that they mount a serious push for promotion.
Aston Villa is currently five points adrift leaders Leeds United in the Championship and will be looking to close the gap in the coming weeks as they want to make it back to the Premier League.
The Aston Villa CEO said that the team is united and that they want to reach their objective. He said that it is never easy to perform in the Championship and that they will have to improve if they want to make it back to the Premier League.
He said that one way to do it is to improve the team and that they feel that by securing Jack Grealish on a long-term contract this is a step in the right direction.
