Jack Grealish is set to be fit for Aston Villa’s clash against Wolves on October 15 despite suffering an injury while on international duty, according to a report.
The Birmingham Mail state that midfielder Grealish is expected to be fit for the Midlands derby, despite sitting out England under-21s 1-0 win over Kazakhstan on Thursday due to a back problem.
Aidy Boothroyd’s side secured their place in next summer’s European Championships with a game to spare, as Damari Gray netted the only goal of the game.
It is said Villa’s academy graduate was only rested on a precautionary measure and is expected to be involved in the England youngsters fixture against Bosnia and Herzegovina on Tuesday.
Grealish has played ten games in all competitions for Villa this season, scoring two goals and providing one assist.
The youngster could be without a manager when Midlands rivals Wolves visit Villa Park, after manager Roberto Di Matteo was axed on Monday after 124 days in charge.
Former Birmingham City boss Steve Bruce is the bookies favourite to take the Villa Park post, with the club languishing in the bottom half with only one win recorded all season.
Caretaker boss Steve Clarke could take charge of Villa’s clash against Wolves, with the Scotsman also in consideration for the manager’s job, with Villa sitting in 19th place with ten points from 11 games.
