Jack Grealish’s influence at Aston Villa continues to grow by the game.
Grealish, 23, is one of the most talented players outside of the top-flight and is once again bidding for promotion to the Premier League with his boyhood club this season.
Grealish, who saw a move to Tottenham fall through last summer before signing a new five-year deal at Villa Park, returned from a three-month lay-off with a shin injury at the beginning of March.
And Villa’s fortunes have drastically changed since then – with Villa winning six successive league games.

That has seen them move from 14th in the Championship table to 5th, giving the Midlands club increased hope they can seal a return back to the Premier League.
During this winning run, where Grealish has skippered the side, Dean Smith’s men have scored 16 goals and conceded just three in the process.
Grealish and co travel to Rotherham on Wednesday night as they look to make it seven wins in a row and tighten their grasp on a top-six spot.
Given Tottenham’s current lack of depth in central midfield, you wouldn’t put it past them attempting to snap him up if they fail in the promotion bid, especially with this form.
