Bio

Aston Villa fans took to John McGinn as soon as he joined from Hibernian in 2018. Winning admirers at Villa Park and beyond for his all-action style of play, the Scottish international scored at Wembley to help secure the club’s return to the Premier League in 2019.

McGinn missed only one Premier League match during the 2020/21 campaign, scoring three times and picking up six assists as Villa finished 11th. After enjoying another strong season in 2021/22, the Scot was named captain in July 2022. 

The midfielder captained Villa to a seventh-place finish and European football during the 2022/23 campaign, coming through a tough spell early in the season to help his side secure a place in the Europa Conference League. His form saw him rewarded with a new contract in June 2023. 

On the international stage, the Glasgow native won Man of the Match on his senior Scotland debut in 2016. His form during EURO 2020 qualification earned him the Scotland Player of the Year award in 2019, and he went on to feature for the Scots at the delayed finals in 2021.
