Derby and QPR leading race to secure deal for exciting Premier League star



Sky Bet Championship sides Derby County and Queens Park Rangers are believed to be the two leading contenders to sign Aston Villa outcast Jack Grealish, according to HITC Sport (via Oddschecker)


Grealish, 20,  is set for a bright future in professional football, although questions regarding his commitment to the game and attitude means that the highly-rated starlet has only featured a handful of times this season and has already found himself in the bad books with new boss Remi Garde, following a disciplinary which meant Grealish was made to train with Aston Villa’s Under 21 side caused by infuriating Garde after a boozy night out.

The youngster could benefit from a loan move to the second tier of English football, as it will help him develop and mature as a footballer.

The Rams currently sit in second spot in the Championship table and look well set to replace Villa in the top-flight next season, despite suffering a recent 2-0 defeat at league leaders Middlesbrough on Saturday, whilst Rangers sit in 16th after a six game winless run under new boss Hasselbaink.

Grealish would undoubtedly be a desirable acquisition for most Championship sides even with the questions regarding his lifestyle.

Although Remi Garde’s Villa certainly wouldn’t sell him for cheap and financial fair play guidelines would likely restrict a permanent move, therefore a loan would be more likely.

QPR & Derby fans…. What do you make of the news? Would you welcome this deal? Or is Grealish too much of a gamble because of his clear lifestyle issues? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
