Aston Villa boss Smith happy keeping hold of McGinn

Aston Villa boss Dean Smith is happy keeping hold of John McGinn.

Villa moved to tie down midfielder John McGinn last week, with the Scot signing a new five-year contract.

McGinn has started every Premier League game this season having missed a chunk of the last campaign with a fractured ankle.

Smith believes there is still more to come from the 26-year-old, saying: “What a signing Steve Bruce made. He's made a real impact in a short time at the club. He's absolutely adored by the supporters.

“We were robbed of him last season when he got injured, that was detrimental to the performances of the team when one of your key players gets injured.

“We're glad to have him back, John still says there's more than 15-20 per cent to come from him. We're happy with where he is and we'll help him keep growing."
