"I am delighted to make this commitment to Villa," the 25-year-old said. "It is my club, my home and I am very happy here.

"The owners have made it very clear to me how ambitious they are and how they want to build Aston Villa. There are exciting times ahead and I am very glad to be part of it."

Villa CEO Christian Purslow added: "Jack is an emblem of our owner's vision for Aston Villa. He joined our club as a local boy aged six and has developed into one of the country's finest players finally becoming a full England international last week."

Grealish signed for Villa at the age of eight and made his senior debut in 2014. He made his England debut on Sept. 8 in the 0-0 draw against Denmark in the UEFA Nations League.

Villa stayed up on the final day of last season thanks to a 1-1 draw against West Ham, with Grealish scoring the all-important goal.
