After reaching a historic ten wins in a row, Aston Villa are safely considered the favourites to gain promotion via the play-offs right now. To be fair, it’s very hard to argue against them.
Whether that is adding unnecessary pressure or not will soon be clear but Dean Smith and his team have completely changed themselves, from a team who seemingly had lost all hope of getting into the play-offs this season to one of the most exciting teams in the country.
Having improved defensively and in attack, everything seems to be coming together at just the right time for Aston Villa, allowing them to this time make it all the way back into the top flight. Though before next season begins, the Villans are sure to have a lot of business to conduct, especially if Jack Grealish gets a move elsewhere.
Grealish, (who is valued at £18 million on Transfermarkt) has recently found himself in the Championship team of the season, something that is a testament to his quality and all-round performances this season.
Aston Villa know full well what he brings to their team and it wouldn’t be a huge statement to say that keeping him would be their best business over the summer. He’s that good. What a truly wonderful player he is.
The 23-year-old has battled through a period of injury and overcome inconsistency to be a reliable provider for Villa, going on to score six goals himself, whilst setting another six goals up as well. Understandably with such form, he has become a player of interest for a number of other teams with Crystal Palace linked in the Daily Mail, something Aston Villa will have to battle against during the summer.
Whether they gain promotion or not, Jack Grealish would continue to be their main man in either division, hence why he must be kept at Villa Park at all costs. If he leaves, the whole project could suffer.
Villa fans, do you think Grealish would stay, even in the Championship? Join the discussion by commenting below…
