Aston Villa captain Grealish: Man Utd rumours nice

Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish admits interest from Manchester United is "nice".

However, the midfielder insists he takes any transfer rumours with a pinch of salt.

He told the Express & Star: "Of course it's nice. Who doesn't like to be talked about in a nice way? But, to be honest, I try and take everything with a pinch of salt.

"I had it all five years ago when I broke through and I was getting talked about a lot. I was 19 years old, going online reading about myself and I couldn't believe it. I was in the papers all the time and they were asking: 'Is this the new big thing?'

"Then just one thing goes wrong and it all comes down on you like a ton of bricks. It is nice to read and nice to listen to, but I don't let it get to me too much, because I know how quickly it can change."
