Aston Villa boss Bruce: Grealish worth double Liverpool's Henderson

Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce says Jack Grealish is capable of playing for any team in the country.

The Mirror says Leicester are eyeing a £20m move should Bruce's side fail to go up.

Bruce admits speculation over his crown jewel is inevitable given his form but insists his value is at least double.

The Villa boss, whose side face Ipswich today, said: “I saw Leicester for £20m. That money now gets you a Harry Maguire, who played 30 times for Hull.

Sam Clucas was £20m. No disrespect to them - I have had them - but how can you have Jack at that price?

Jordan Henderson was £19m when I sold him to Liverpool from Sunderland eight years ago.

“You would have to double that to think about even blinking. I am going to have it (reports) 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."
