After all the fuss, will Jack Grealish still be in the Premier League next season?

Latest reports from Aston Villa suggest the Irish underage international will be moved on this summer.

IT’S NOT THAT long ago since Jack Grealish was at the centre of many different debates.

But quite a lot has changed in the last few months.

In November, Remi Garde arrived as Aston Villa’s new manager and almost immediately, he clashed with the 20-year-old after Grealish was pictured partying after his side suffered a 4-0 defeat to Everton.

With Grealish experiencing a number of other controversies in the preceding months, Garde banished him to the U21 side as punishment and the Irish underage international has not figured much in the first-team since.

He’s been restricted to mainly substitute appearances in the Premier League while his only start since that run-in with Garde came away to Sunderland. He lasted 57 minutes before being replaced.

Latest reports suggest that with Villa preparing for relegation to the Championship, Grealish is one of the names they are hoping to move on.
