Aston Villa could be given a huge boost towards the end of the month as they continue to push for a play-off spot.
The Telegraph reports that the club hope to have Jack Grealish back for their Championship game against Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium on February 23rd.
Grealish has been out of action since December after he picked up a shin injury in a 2-2 draw at West Brom in a blow to manager Dean Smith.
The 23-year-old had found some serious form under Smith, who replaced Steve Bruce in the Villa Park dugout last October, as the club’s revival got underway.
But since his injury, they have go on to struggle in a lot of games, falling behind in the race for promotion as a result. With a large chunk of the season still remaining, though, there could still be hope yet for Villa.
Have a look at what supporters are saying about Grealish’s return below…
