Jacob Ramsey has signed a new Aston Villa contract, tying him to the Premier League club until 2027.
The England Under-21s midfielder has been a standout star for Steven Gerrard's side this season and has been rewarded with a fresh deal.
And academy graduate and Villa fan Ramsey said he was 'over the moon' to commit his long-term future to the club.
'It's a proud moment for me, especially for my family,' he told VillaTV.
'I've been here a long time now, come through the Academy, and to sign for another five years at this club, I'm over the moon.'
He added: 'There's so many people who have helped me get to this point now, I can't thank everyone enough from Under-9s, to being a scholar, to U23s and then stepping up to the first team.
'It's been good; a lot of up and down moments but it's all part of the journey and I feel like I've been playing well this season so it's nice to be rewarded with a new contract.'
Ramsey has hit six Premier League goals so far this campaign after opening his Villa account in the defeat to Arsenal in October.
'Aston Villa is delighted to announce Jacob Ramsey has signed a new contract with the club,' a statement on avfc.co.uk read.
A statement on Villa's official website said: 'Aston Villa is delighted to announce that Jacob Ramsey has signed a new four-and-a-half-year deal at the club.
'The 20-year-old has put pen to paper on a deal until 2027.
'A product of the Aston Villa Academy, the midfielder has been with the club since the age of six and progressed through the ranks, making his senior debut against West Bromwich Albion in 2019.
'After a short loan spell with Doncaster Rovers, Ramsey made his Premier League bow last term at Fulham before making his full debut against Wolverhampton Wanderers.'
The 20-year-old has been capped at England age groups from the under-18s upwards and has been tipped for a senior cap.
