Jack Grealish opts for England


Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has pledged his international future to England. The 20-year-old has represented the Republic of Ireland at youth levels up to under-21, but has chosen to play for the country of his birth over that of his grandparents. He said: "I have decided to give my allegiance to England. "It was not an easy decision as Ireland has a special place with me through my family. "But I have decided to represent the country of my birth." It ends months of speculation and Grealish could be called up by Roy Hodgson for next month’s European Qualifiers against Estonia and Lithuania.
