McGinn, 26, first joined Aston Villa in 2018 after making the switch from Scottish side Hibernian FC in a deal which cost the Villains just £2.79m, as per Transfermarkt.

Since joining up with Dean Smith’s side two-years ago, McGinn has gone on to become one of his manager’s most trusted first-team players after featuring in 83 matches, in all competitions.

McGinn, who primarily operates as a central midfielder, also boasts a highly respectable goal contribution record after being directly involved in 27 goals.

In light of his side’s hugely impressive start to the new 2020-21 campaign, McGinn’s employers have been keen to tie down the services of one of their most important players.

The news that Aston Villa’s 26-year-old midfielder has signed a new contract until 2025 was confirmed on the club’s official website, AVFC.

The club’s official statement read: “Aston Villa is pleased to announce that John McGinn has signed a contract extension until 2025.”

In light of the good news, McGinn is set to feature for his side when they face-off against Wolverhampton Wanderers in a hotly anticipated Midlands Derby on Saturday afternoon.
