The 25 year-old playmaker has been heavily linked with a blockbuster £100 million move to the Etihad Stadium in the coming days, with an official bid submitted by Manchester City on Friday afternoon.

The expectation is that Aston Villa would accept the bid, and that Jack Grealish would put pen to paper on a five-year contract with the Premier League champions, taking home in excess of £200,000-a-week.

However, while reports surrounding a move have intensified over the past few days, the Aston Villa captain has been spotted reporting for duty on Sunday - less than 24 hours after returning from his summer holiday.
