Although the Championship trio realise that there is no chance of them being able to agree a permanent deal for the attacking midfielder, they seemingly believe that a loan move may be possible.
Grealish has not been a regular starter since Remi Garde took charge at Villa, with his discipline coming into question.
The 20-year-old was forced to train with the under-21’s as punishment back in November, and he has not broken back into the Midlands’ outfit’s starting line up since.
Villa recognise that Grealish is arguably the best young talent at the club, but his lack of first team football is hardly aiding his development.
As a result, Leeds, QPR and Derby plan to take advantage of the youngster’s current situation by offering Villa the chance to get their prized prospect some regular action.
Leeds and QPR are both hoping to climb the Championship table to make a push for the play off places in the second half of the season, while Derby currently occupy an automatic promotion spot.
Grealish has played 15 times for Villa in all competitions this season, scoring once.
