Wasn't worth more than £3m plus Josh then wasn't worth £20m then wasn't worth £40m then wasn't worth £60 and now isn't worth £80m. Despite him proving everyone wrong every single time.
If I was in charge of any club in the world or any nation, I'd drop £100m on Jack and/or build a team around him.

It is quite astounding nobody wants to.

Might be arrogance. An unwillingness to believe a local lad like Jack at a club like Villa is such a talent. Seems like teams only think he's worth a place on their bench. Their loss.

Great news of him signing a new contract.

I always found it strange that people see this as 'lack of ambition'. True he might be able to win more trophies elsewhere and I'm sure that many footballers will measure their career by their trophy cabinet at the end. But who remembers all the (part-time) players of the first Chelsea title under Abramovich? They'll have a decent trophy case, I'm sure.

Jack has the opportunity to become a villa legend, if not THE villa legend, should he play his entire career at Villa. Even if he doens't win anythings, Villa fans will love him forever. I'm sure many teenagers of today would tell their children in a few decades about the times they went to Villa park 'to see grealish play'. It seems like choosing to be remembered by many people (global fan base) who know your name, but aren't sure when exactly you played or being remembered by a few (Villa supporters, not too few I know) like a superstar until he's old, buying him a beer 'for that goal against SHA after taking a punch' in pretty much every pub in Birmingham. Someone mentioned Shearer at Newcastle, let's hope Jack does the same.

(I know Gabby only played for us and is our club top scorer, but his last few years weren't really any good, so there is no comparison)

In this day and age, football mercenaries, big clubs buying up all of the talent, tapping up, clubs going bust etc, etc. What a signing we have made.

This is a reason to believe that loyalty still exists, that one of the best midfielders in England will not have his heard turned by the big boys and will want to achieve things with the club he loves.

Jack, you beautiful, beautiful man. 

Let's get better together.

Villa have reached as many cup finals in the past decade as Spuds and by and large we have been utterly dreadful for ten years. 

Everton, Newcastle, and West Ham have not reached a cup final for over ten years which is dire. Leeds not even one this century.

Unless he moves to someone like Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea or possibly Arsenal or Manyew then he has as much as chance to win something here than at any other club in England.

Clever those bookies aren't they? 

I just noticed Coral still have a market on which club Jack will be at come the end of the transfer window. Manchester United and Arsenal are both 5/2, Liverpool are 4/1,  Spurs are 10/1 and Leicester are 18/1. Can't seem to find Aston Villa on the list, I wonder why not? I quite fancied a cheeky bet on us...:D 

to be fair you haven't been able to bet on jack staying at villa for weeks

This is the best piece of news for us this summer! Just wonderful! I was worried that Man U or C would come in with a big bid at the end of the transfer window, now I'm not worried anymore! No way he will do a Delph.

Would be interesting to know how much he gets a month now and if there is a buy-out clause.
