Jack Grealish returns to Aston Villa senior squad after forced exile

Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has been brought back in from the cold after being forced by manager Remi Garde to train with the youth team.

The 20-year-old was placed in exile as punishment following the emergence of photographs which showed him partying in a Manchester nightclub just hours after a 4-0 defeat to Everton. Remi Garde confirmed in midweek he will return.

I am pleased to have him back because he's an important player for the group. I am pleased regarding how Jack trained over the past two weeks with the U21s. Jack is back. I am happy for that - and for the team

Missing Premier League matches against Watford and Southampton, of which Villa picked up one point, Grealish played for the under-21s side during the victory against Derby County on Monday.
