How long until we see Jack Grealish playing first team football?

Victor Fraile

Near the end of a season-long loan at League One side Notts County, Jack Grealish has been gaining valuable experience. Will we see him involved with the first team next season?

Thanks to Birmingham Mail reporter (and friend of the blog) Mat Kendrick paying a visit to Notts County, we have some new information on promising youngster Jack Grealish. In his article today, he reviewed the team's most recent match and got some supporter's opinions on our on-loan winger.

Grealish has made 37 appearances for the Magpies, starting 31 times. Scoring five times and assisting another six, he has had a pretty productive season. Only 18 years old, the left winger has been comfortable in a 4-4-2 formation, but I think he would fit in just as well in a 4-3-3. Right now, he is being scouted heavily by half a dozen Championship sides hoping to secure his services for next season, as well as Gordon Cowans checking on his progress regularly.

Surely he will feature in the pre-season, but hopefully Lambert (or whoever the manager is come August) gives Grealish a fair shake at cracking the first team. If he is not good enough, then a loan to the Championship is fine, but the tricky winger would provide a spark that has been missing from the Villa team as of late.
