Report: Four clubs want Villa youngster Jack Grealish on loan

Nottingham Forest, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Ipswich Town and Brentford are all said to be keen on signing Jack Grealish on loan.

Four clubs are trying to sign Aston Villa winger Jack Grealish on loan, according to a report in the Daily Mirror

The Villa youngster has found first-team football harder to come by than expected at Villa Park this season and it seems that a temporary move could be on the cards. 

Wolverhampton Wanderers, Nottingham Forest, Ipswich Town and Brentford are reportedly all hoping to sign Grealish in the next few days and are expected to make offers to Villa. 

Grealish has already impressed in the lower leagues after a spell with League One Notts County last term and he will be looking to show that he can perform at a higher level if he does move out on loan. 

What's the impact for Villa?

It is hardly surprising to see Grealish so in-demand, given his obvious talents. 

What is arguably more shocking is the fact that the youngster hasn't made more of an impact at Villa Park this season.

Although he was making a big-step up from League One football, the fleet-footed winger is a prodigious talent and most expected him to play a big role in Villa's side this campaign.

Paul Lambert is clearly not convinced that he is ready for top-level football yet, though, and he has only played him 12 times. 

As a result, a loan move looks best for all parties. If he can make an impact at Championship level, Grealish will be hoping to come back an even stronger player and have more impact on Villa's season next year.
