Hutton: Aston Villa fans will be 'absolutely buzzing' as Grealish footage emerges
Alan Hutton has claimed Aston Villa fans will be “absolutely buzzing” to see Jack Grealish back in training this week.
The former Villa defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, insisted the 25-year-old is acting as he should amid much speculation over his future.
As pictured on Monday (August 2nd), Grealish has returned to training after his exploits with England over the summer.
However, as revealed by Football Insider on Saturday (July 31st), the Villa talisman is expected to complete a move to Manchester City this week.
While Grealish has returned to training, fellow England international Harry Kane has not reported back to Spurs for two successive days.
As detailed by this site on Tuesday, the Tottenham striker has told Grealish he will do “whatever it takes” to engineer a move.

With Kane putting his reputation on the line to force an exit, Hutton suggested Villa supporters would be thrilled with Grealish’s conduct.
Hutton told Football Insider’s Russell Edge: “He’s acting in the proper way. He’s conducting himself well, back in when he should be.
“He’s looking fit, he’s looking healthy and he’s training with the team. That’s all he can do as a player. Everything else, all the outside noise will take care of itself.
“Obviously, every Villa fan is absolutely buzzing to see him back in training. They want him to be the main part of their squad moving forward. Especially with these exciting players coming in round about him.
“We’ll have to see how it develops but he’s shown a great attitude. That’s what you want from your club captain.”
Grealish is still contracted at Aston Villa until 2025.
His last extension came back in September 2020.
