Jack Grealish has been out of action for Aston Villa’s last seven fixtures with a shin injury.
In that time the Villains have won just one game and are quickly slipping out of the playoff picture without their star player.
Villa striker Jonathan Kodjia paid tribute to the tricky winger, who he hopes will be back soon to give him some much needed supply up front.
“Jack Grealish is a wonderful player – but also a great guy,” Kodjia told avfc.co.uk.
“He’s such a good footballer. He’s an Aston Villa fan, the supporters love him for that – and he also leaves his mark in every game.
“I think in every match he proves his talent. He produces big moments. He always affects the game.
“Hopefully we will see him back soon.”
Judging by this tweet, Grealish is clearly eager to get back on the pitch.
