Grealish proud of Villa homegrown status

Jack Grealish is proud to be a homegrown player with Aston Villa.

The winger penned new terms with Villa last week.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "I'm proud people think of me as home-grown talent."

The club have bought an acre of land at the rear of Villa Park in order to grow vegetables for the club's chefs to then feed the players with the fresh produce.

"It's nice to see the club staying close to its roots with this project," added Grealish
