West Ham amongst others are showing an interest in Aston Villa winger, Jack Grealish according to reports.

The Birmingham Mail report how Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are also showing an interest in Grealish who has struggled for first team football at Villa Park since the arrival of Remi Garde as manager.

Grealish rose to prominence under Tim Sherwood last season with some impressive showings in Villa’s run to the FA Cup final including his role in dismantling Liverpool in the semi-final.

The former Irish under-21 international has had a tough ride with the press on three occasions where he has been shamed for his off-field antics including most recently being pictured out drinking hours after Villa’s heavy 4-0 defeat to Everton.

The 20-year old has also scored his first senior goal for Villa this campaign in a 3-2 defeat to Leicester as well as declaring he wants to play for England at international level.
