Aston Villa are braced for January approaches from both Manchester United and Manchester City for England ace Jack Grealish.

However, champions Liverpool have distanced themselves from suggestions that they are monitoring Grealish's future - amid claims Mo Salah is unhappy.

The Villa captain has taken his game to new heights this term as he has starred for England.

Grealish,25, who has five caps, has also got five goals and six assists already for Villa in the Premier League.

He penned a new five-year deal in September as his pay rocketed to £130,000-a-week.
