We have already reported today that the Villans are closing in on the loan signing of the talented winger Yannick Bolasie from Everton, having already brought in the Lille wideman Anwar El Ghazi, also on a loan deal. "I visited Villa Park after flying in from Holland and it gave me goosebumps".

"Jack Grealish has been fantastic. We hope to reward him, we're in talks with him now", Bruce revealed ahead of Saturday's game against Ipswich. "We hope to get an agreement by the end of the month", Bruce was quoted by Aston Villa's official Twitter account.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference on Friday morning, Bruce hailed Grealish's application and has revealed that the 22-year-old is set to sign a new deal with the Championship side.

"I think it's important people hear that".

Europe's rise in measles kills at least 37 people
Experts blame this surge in infections on a drop in the number of people being vaccinated. Last year, there were 23,927 measles cases in all of 2017.

"Typical Jack. All the stories you hear about him, one thing I can tell you is that he wants to play".

"We're frustrated because it was a great opportunity but really when I analyse it we were better against 11 men than we were 10", Bruce said.

With his excellent footwork, Grealish relishes going one-on-one with defenders although he's not quite fast enough to consistently lose his marker, but makes up for it with excellent passing.

The 20-year-old forward/midfielder could benefit from the first-team experience under coach Daniel Stendel, whose Reds extended their impressive start to the 2018-19 League One season with a 4-0 win over Rochdale at Spotland last night.
