Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has pledged his future to England amid reports that he will be called up by Roy Hodgson this week.

Solihull-born Grealish, who celebrated his 20th birthday this month, represented the Republic at Under-21 level through his Irish-born grandparents before his displays at Villa under the guidance of Tim Sherwood caught the eye of Hodgson.

He had been dallying about making a decision but after talks with Hodgson and Ireland manager Martin O’Neill, he has opted for England and a potential call-up for Estonia and Lithuania qualifying matches.

Grealish has started four Premier League games this season and has registered one goal and no assists; he has created four chances for his team-mates.
