Jack Grealish Accused Of ‘Embarrassing’ Dive In Aston Villa’s Controversial Loss To West Ham

    Jack Grealish was accused of an 'embarrassing' dive during Aston Villa's 2-1 loss against West Ham on Monday night.

Everton chief Brands keen on Grealish, but wants Everton Soares first

Everton chief Marcel Brands is keen on Jack Grealish - though the Aston Villa captain isn't a priority.
