Aston Villa star Jack Grealish admits he did not know he would sign a new contract until a few days ago.

The Villa homegrown talent has committed his immediate future to the club.

The 25-year-old has signed a five year deal that will end speculation of a possible move to Manchester United.

And Grealish admitted it was touch and go on whether he would stay.

He told Sky Sports: "Yeah, I suppose so [it was touch and go].

"I had a good season last season and there was interest in myself from other clubs, but I just truly believe that everything happens for a reason and I've just happened to sign a new contract at Aston Villa, and I've got the biggest smile on my face."
