Aston Villa’s John McGinn has committed his long term future to his Midlands side after the club confirmed their Scottish midfielder has signed a new contract until 2025.
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.”
