Aston Villa star Jack Grealish's haircut already being copied in Birmingham

The cut is already proving popular, as Villans copy the trend of their new hero.

With Tim Sherwood now the boss at Aston Villa, fans of the club can expect him to start giving young players much more of a chance at Villa Park.

The former Tottenham boss has a good record with giving youngsters a much more involved role in the first-team - Harry Kane and Nabil Bentaleb will vouch.

Now he is doing the same with Jack Grealish. The Irish youth international looks like becoming a star at the club after recent performances and is already something of a cult hero at Villa Park.

It is not just his ability that makes him popular. He has a mercurial character, with his socks rolled down, tiny shinpads and his distinctive haircut.

The latter, is now set to be the haircut of the summer in Birmingham.

According to the Birmingham Mail, the 'Grealish Cut' is becoming very popular already. They quote The Gentleman Barbers in Birmingham city centre, where Grealish gets his hair done, as stating that many a customer is already asking for the bob:

"We've had a few people coming in and asking for the same kind of cut.

"We expect a lot more now that he is becoming more famous."

So it seems Grealish is going to become the David Beckham of Brum with his hair-style trend-setting.
