Man Utd winger James reveals Grealish friendship

Manchester United winger Daniel James admits he's close to Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.

In victory over Newcastle, James' performance on the right flank attracted a social media post from Villa star Grealish, who had been watching on television.

After a message of “Well done lad" from the England international, James as asked where the pair had met, as they have never played for the same side.

“Yeah [we're friends], I've met him a few times as we actually have the same agency," he explained to manutd.com.

“I've seen Jack on holiday a few times actually and he's a very nice lad."
