Aston Villa have hit top form at the perfect time as they continue to edge closer towards securing themselves a play-off spot, with Derby County’s lead now sliced to two points.
Supporters would never have imagined that their side could secure a play-off spot after struggling for consistency in the New Year, but they’re now on track to pull off what would be an incredible turnaround.
However, one huge worry for fans recently has been Jack Grealish’s future at Villa Park, as the Englishman is reportedly (as per Daily Mail) still a target for Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur.
So, with fans facing an anxious wait until the summer to see if he leaves, here are the potential consequences…
DEAN SMITH LOSES VILLA HERO
Jack Grealish has become a fan favourite at Villa Park over the years as he’s gone from a talented youth product to arguably the club’s best player. He’s featured 135 times for the Midlands club, which includes a number of memorable moments, with his latest coming against Birmingham City in the recent Second City derby.
He lives and breathes for Aston Villa but he’s one of the best players outside of the Premier League at this moment in time, so it would come as no surprise if he decided to leave in the summer as he deserves to make the next step.
VILLA PARK DISTRAUGHT
It would be impossible for fans to ever forget a club hero like Jack Grealish as he’s achieved an awful lot already, with his recent step up to captaincy being a highlight for the Englishman.
He possesses the ability to create something out of absolutely nothing and has scored a number of crucial goals in the current campaign, with fans now praying that he can take them to the Premier League to top things off.
Supporters would be left distraught if he was to leave in the summer as he’s found a place in the hearts of many and it’s not often that you find a special talent like the 23-year-old.
Aston Villa fans, how can you ever replace Grealish? Surely it’s near enough impossible…
