Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish has suggested in a conversation with Prince William that he could get back to fitness within the ‘week or 10 days’.
Grealish has been out of action since February and his absence has coincided with a return to form for Villa.
The Englishman had scored six goals and assisted 12 in 22 Premier League appearances this season before a shin injury brought his campaign to a halt.
The Villians are now 10th in the Premier League table, but are still within easy reach of Arsenal and Everton above them.
With Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea to come, Villa could do with Grealish coming back from injury sooner rather than later.
Now, as he revealed to Prince William on Tuesday, Grealish could be back within the next 10 days.
Speaking to the Duke of Cambridge as quoted by the Birmingham Mail, Grealish said he hoped he would be back in a week or 10 days.
“I don’t have a date yet, but I’m going to London on Thursday,” Grealish said. “I hope for a week or 10 days.”
This could see Grealish return for Aston Villa’s clash with Everton on May 13.
SL View – Will Grealish be selected for England at Euros?
Gareth Southgate will have a big decision to make regarding Jack Grealish’s participation in the European Championship this summer.
As Grealish sought a place in the England squad before his injury, the midfielder has been out of action for much of the Premier League season.
Players with a similar skill set, such as Mason Mount, went from strength to strength during this time, which could cause a problem for Grealish.
However, if we base Grealish solely on his ability before February’s injury, Southgate must include him in the squad.
Only time will tell if the Villa man has done enough to impress the national team boss.
