Robbie Savage urges Jack Grealish to move clubs as he is ‘far better than Aston Villa’

Robbie Savage has urged Jack Grealish

to leave Aston Villa for one of the Premier League’s big clubs.

The 24-year-old local boy is a lifelong Villa fan, and has been delivering impressive performances as the teams captain this season.

Grealish scored Villa’s opener against Man Utd on Sunday with a marvellous curling effort to further his claims for a place in the next England squad.

And Savage believes Grealish needs to move on if he is to realise his full potential.

Speaking on BBC Radio Five Live , Savage said: “Aston Villa what are they going to achieve? Staying in the Premier League.

“If they achieve that it is going to be a great season for them, they are not winning a cup.

“If Manchester City , Spurs or Chelsea come with a massive offer for Jack Grealish, let’s say £80 million, I think he’ll go.

“He’s far better than Aston Villa.”

England boss Gareth Southgate has so far resisted calls for Grealish to be handed his international bow.

The midfielder could have played for Republic of Ireland, having represented the country through their youth ranks from under-15’s to under-21’s.

But Grealish declared for England in 2015, yet has since been overlooked for a place in the Three Lions’ squad.

Villa boss Dean Smith said after the 2-2 draw with United: “All Jack can control are his performances and if he keeps performing the way he is, he puts more pressure on the people choosing those squads.

“I don’t envy them with the talent they have to pick from. But for me, Jack is getting better and better.

“He’s a top player and when you have top players you get performances at places like this.”

The club’s chief executive Christian Purslow has recently insisted they have no need to sell Grealish.

When asked what Villa would do if faced with a mega-money bid, Purslow told talkSPORT : “We can say no.

“We have a team of very young players with great international futures ahead of them.

“That’s the most important thing for the financial and footballing health of the club, that you have players who are assets, who are improving all the time and whose values are improving.”
