Grealish told Sky Sports: & # 39; I'm speechless, really. I can't even explain how happy I am. It means the world, we all know where this club belongs. & # 39;
The captain of the Villa admitted that he thought he would leave the club at the start of the season, making a transition to a Premier League side seem certain.
& # 39; I thought I was going, 10 months later I am here now and I have returned my youth club to the Premier League as captain and scored twice against Blues – perfect season, & # 39; he said.
Goal scorer McGinn praised referee Paul Tierney for allowing his head to score when he challenged goalie Roos.
McGinn said: We deserve it, it was a difficult game against Derby.
& # 39; Full honor to the referee. Half of the referees would have reported it as an error, but he left the goal. I am very happy to be with a Premier League club. & # 39;
