Aston Villa forward Jack Grealish has taken to Twitter to express his reaction after he won Villa’s goal of the season award on Sunday.
The 22-year-old has been in superb form this season, scoring three goals and registering five assists in the Championship. He tweeted:

Grealish is one of the best young players in the Championship and has been attracting interest from Premier League clubs.
Steve Bruce, the Villa manager, has laughed off the suggestion of selling the playmaker at such a price, saying the Foxes would need to at least double the amount for the player to even consider the offer.
“I saw Leicester for £20m. That money now gets you a Harry Maguire, who played 30 times for Hull,” Bruce said at his press conference on Friday.
“I am going to have it all summer, I would think. I am delighted Jack is getting recognition for what he is doing on the pitch.
“But I think I can safely say £20m would not buy his right leg at the moment, that is for sure.”
Villa fans took to Twitter to congratulate Grealish and they believe it will take a massive offer to lure him away from the Villa Park in the summer transfer window.
Congratulations young man, fantastic player with an England career beckoning too ?
