Jack Grealish’s Dad: My Son Hasn’t Decided to Play For England

Jack Grealish’s dad insists his son is yet to make a decision on his international future – despite reports he had chosen England over Ireland.

The Aston Villa midfielder’s international allegiance has been a topic of discussion since making his debut for the club in May 2014.

He represented Ireland up until under-21 level and was expected to carry that through to the first team.

But Grealish now appears unsure on which country to represent – he can play for both due to his birth in England and Irish grandparents.

A decision is expected from the Birmingham-born wideman soon, with both Roy Hodgson and Martin O’Neill keen to include him in their squad for the final two Euro 2016 qualifiers next month.

However Kevin insists reports suggesting he’s ready to pick England are premature.

He said:

There is nothing in that report whatsoever. No decision has been made by Jack yet. He hasn’t even played much football this season because of injuries.

Grealish has started just two games for Villa this season after a hamstring injury ruled him out of early matches and is a doubt for Sunday’s league clash away to Leicester.

Who should he pick? Let us know your view in the comments below.
