Grealish inks new Aston Villa contract

LONDON

Sep 26, 2018-

Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish, who was linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur in the close season, has signed a new five-year deal to stay at the Championship side until 2023, Villa said on Monday. Tottenham were keen to sign Grealish and British media reported they had a £25 million offer rejected. Grealish, 23, joined Villa in 2011 and played 34 Premier League games before they were relegated in 2016. Former English and European champions Villa lost 1-0 to Fulham in the Championship playoff final last season to miss out on promotion to the top flight. (REUTERS)
