Teenager Jack Grealish has burst onto the scene and really is a player to watch.

In fact he won young sportsman of the year in September 2014 in an event held at Villa Park's Holte Suite - recognition for his rise to the first team reckoning in claret and blue.

Known for his trademark 'low socks', he came through the youth ranks at Villa Park, featuring for the academy and U21s over a five-year period.

The exciting winger always gets spectators on their feet and is highly regarded by U21 boss, Gordon Cowans as well as manager Paul Lambert and No.2 Roy Keane.

Three days after celebrating his 18th birthday, he moved to East Midlands side Notts County on an initial four-month loan.

Such was the success, he remained at Meadow Lane until the end of the season, donning the No.7 jersey, featuring 37 times and netting five times.

Towards the back end of last season, he was rewarded for his efforts and came off the bench for Villa's first team at Manchester City.

Although from Solihull, Grealish has so far opted to represent the Republic of Ireland at international level.

He qualifies through his father who is from Dublin as well as his Irish grandparents.

He has solely represented the Republic of Ireland since first declaring at 14.

He has won caps from U15s to U21 level.

Despite strong interest from England, Grealish made his U21 debut for Ireland as a late substitute against the Faroe Islands in August 2013.

In 2013, Grealish reaffirmed his desire to continue representing Ireland.

Grealish was unleashed on Villa's opening day win at Stoke City, playing the final 20 minutes and stretching City's backline in the process.
