Redknapp: Aston Villa captain Grealish as talented as any player England has

Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish is as talented as any player England has.

He wrote for The Sun: "Grealish is a young player who divides opinion like few others. Some don't think he's inter national class, others think he should be the main man.

"And the more I see of him, the more I am convinced he's a guy England should be building the team around. I really think he's that good.

"I tell you what, if he was playing for any other country, the only argument would be how to stop him, not whether he should be in the side in the first place.

"The problem is, when Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford and Harry Kane are all available, will Grealish get in? I'm not so certain.

"But even with a fully-fit squad, Jack would still be one of the first names on any England teamsheet of mine.

"I'm not saying that should be at the expense of Sterling or Rashford. There's no reason why all three can't be in the same team."
