Aston Villa boss Bruce: Grealish more talented than Liverpool midfielder Henderson

Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce has lauded Jack Grealish as the best young player he has ever managed.

The midfielder almost joined Tottenham Hotspur this summer. And Bruce thinks the club's new owners will reward him with an improved contract.

And Bruce believes Grealish is more talented than Liverpool duo Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson, who he managed at Sunderland and Hull City respectively.

He told BBC Sport: "He's arguably the best young player I've had, probably ever, when you think of Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson who are playing at Liverpool, and I've had a lot of good young players.

"We have said to him there will be a reward of a new contract offer to him. The new owners are trying to get a new chief executive in at the moment and that will kick in hopefully at the end of this month when the window closes."
