Aston Villa fans were handed positive news earlier today when the club announced Jack Grealish had signed a new five-year deal at Villa Park.

The new contract brings an end to consistent transfer speculation for the 23-year-old midfielder, who has struggled for form this season with a return of just one assist in his nine Championship appearances.

With his future now secure, Grealish will be looking to kick on in the weeks ahead to help improve a woeful run of form for Villa that has seen Steve Bruce’s side win just one of their last eight matches across all competitions – while they have also kept a clean sheet just once in the league.

While the news regarding Grealish’s contract was positive, many supporters on social media took the opportunity to urge the club to announce a departure for Bruce – with many adding that they believe the England U21 international would not be able to fulfil his potential unless a change in management follows swiftly.

We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
