The Birmingham Mail has reported that Jack Grealish has been offered a new 4-year deal to continue his development at Aston Villa. With only 12 months left on his contract, rumors had been swirling around the potential star that Chelsea would swoop in and bring them into their extremely evil club.
We at 7500 have grown quite fond of Jack Grealish in his short time with the senior squad and certainly hope he signs this offer as soon as possible. There has been little to be truly excited about regarding Aston Villa over the last few seasons but Grealish seems to be a legitimate force in the making. In his appearance as a sub against Hull, Grealish wasted no time making an impact. He drew a number of hard fouls to shut down whatever chance the Tigers had of getting back into the match.
With his unmistakable giant hair and lack of shin pads, Grealish has the chance to make fans outside of Birmingham take notice of Villa for reasons beyond the usual Robbie Savage relegation-vomit. His being a homegrown talent and a local kid, makes his emergence that much more special.
Dare I say this is something Villa cannot afford to screw up.
