The Stoke City manager is reportedly seeking an interim midfielder to fill the void left by the injured Ibrahim Afellay, who will be out for an extended period of time due to damaged knee ligaments.

According to The Sun, the Potters have scouted Grealish extensively, including his recent play for the England Under-21s who knocked off host nation France at the 2016 Toulon Tournament.

Unfortunately for Villa, the team’s relegation to the Championship doesn’t appear to help their case in keeping the attacking-minded player.
