Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish tweeted on Monday that he is close to a return to first team action following his injury, and Villa fans are delighted with the news.

The 22-year-old would have been hoping to make a massive impact for the Midlands outfit this season as they look to secure a return to the Premier League at the second attempt, but he was hospitalised during a pre-season game with Watford in July after his kidneys suffered a blow during a collision with Tom Cleverley.
Steve Bruce will be looking forward to the return of the talented attacker considering his team has won just two of their opening eight Championship fixtures this season, although one of those came on Saturday when they beat Barnsley 3-0 at Oakwell.
Aston Villa supporters were quick to respond to Grealish’s Twitter post via social media, with some saying ‘the club needs him’ and others saying they ‘want to see him play up top with Jonathan Kodjia’.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
