After a disappointing season - he made just nine starts in the Premier League, scoring one goal - Jack Grealish has flourished for the England U21s.
The 2014/15 season was one where he showed real signs of promise, getting an opportunity to start under Tim Sherwood as Aston Villa made a run to the FA Cup final. His performance along with Aston Villa as a whole was disappointing at Wembley. Still, prospects looked bright for this season.
It just didn't happen for him. Under Remi Garde, opportunities were restricted. That was down to a combination of form, behaviour off the pitch and injury.

Grealish is only 20 though and a player with plenty of upside.
According to the Telegraph, a number of Premier League clubs are interested in his services. Those include Spurs, Everton and, most solidly, Stoke City. The Birmingham Mail add that Watford are also looking at the midfielder.
The Telegraph reports that Mark Hughes has already 'registered' his interest due to the long-term absence of Ibrahim Afellay and a desire to increase the creativity of his midfield.
The 20-year-old made his England U21 debut in the Toulon Tournament this month, scoring twice against Guinea.
England went on to win the tournament, though Grealish did not actually play in the final.

According to the Birmingham Mail, Villa have already rejected overtures for the player who is contracted until 2018.
