Aston Villa

Jack Grealish tipped to make Aston Villa return after Man City star comments on transfer

Gabriel Agbonlahor thinks Jack Grealish will one day return to Aston Villa after the England international left his boyhood club for Manchester City last summer.

Grealish left Villa Park for a Premier League record £100million in August and could win the Premier League title with City during his first season at the club. But to do so, Pep Guardiola’s side will surely have to beat Villa at the Etihad this weekend.

The title race has gone down to the wire this campaign as Liverpool and City are braced for a tantalising final day on Sunday. Jurgen Klopp’s Reds host Wolves at Anfield, while City will face Grealish’s former club Villa.

And ahead of the weekend clash with City, former Villa striker Agbonlahor claims supporters would not be fussed to see Grealish win the league against them. He said on talkSPORT: “I don’t think they will mind that. I think a lot more Villa fans are okay with the idea, you know at first a lot of them were hurt, one of their best players and left and obviously they were disappointed.

“But on social media now you see a lot that if Jack Grealish wanted to come back tomorrow, they’d take him with open arms and I do believe one day that he will come back and play for Aston Villa, similar to what Ashley Young done.”

Grealish himself has already spoken about his future and a possible return to Villa. He said back in November: “You can’t imagine how hard it was for me to leave. I went for a run in the morning, a load of people took photographs of me and it was all on social [media] that I was staying. I came back and had to address all the players and staff. There were about 70 people there. I spoke for about a minute-and-a-half, then I had to stop because I had a lump in my throat and was crying.

“I was a bit surprised by some of the backlash when I left. I’d never want a toxic relationship with anyone there. I owe everything to them and I wouldn’t be at City without Villa. It’s a club that is so close to my heart and I definitely hope to go back there. That’s always been in my mind. Ashley Young has done it and I want to do the same, 100 per cent.”
