Three Jack Grealish replacements Aston Villa should sign

According to reports in The Telegraph, Aston Villa winger Jack Grealish could be out of action for up to six months after suffering a blow to his kidneys that left him in hospital for three days.

The England Under-21 international has already suffered many setbacks in his short career to date and he was left in agony after being hit in the kidneys in an accidental clash with Watford midfielder Tom Cleverley during the two sides’ pre-season clash last weekend.

After visiting him in hospital following the incident, Villa boss Steve Bruce said: “It will be at least three months and it could be much longer than that.

“We hope that he has a speedy recovery, of course, as losing him is a blow to us.”

Grealish has only made 44 starts for the club during the course of the last three seasons following a number of injuries and off-the-field problems, but Bruce could still look to bring in a replacement on the left wing as he doesn’t exactly have a wealth of options in wide areas despite strengthening his squad this summer ahead of a promotion push.
