Leeds United and Jack Grealish are two things that usually don’t go well together.
The Villa playmaker doesn’t have many fans at Elland Road, and that was clear with every cheer as the Whites players gave him a tough time in the controversial 1-1 draw two years ago.
Grealish was on away on England international duty with Kalvin Phillips recently, and that highlighted the relationship that duo have.
The Villa playmaker signed a new five-year deal in the midlands on Tuesday, despite heavy speculation linking him with a move away.
Grealish delivered a message on his personal Instagram account after claiming that he was staying with “his club.”
Eagled-eyed Leeds fans will have noticed Whites duo Phillips and Luke Ayling both sending messages to Grealish congratulating him on the new contract.
Grealish may not have a close relationship with the Leeds faithful, but that doesn’t stop the players from forming that bond.
The Villa captain regularly comments on the posts of Phillips, and this is the Yorkshire Pirlo repaying those compliments recently.
It won’t be long until the Leeds players will be tasked with keeping Grealish quiet, with the two sides meeting at Villa Park at the end of October.
Phillips and Ayling both received massive praise for their performances in the 4-3 defeat against Liverpool on Saturday, and will both be key for the rest of the season.
Grealish made sure he kept his side in the Premier League last season, with a goal against West Ham on the final day and this Leeds duo will want to avoid that pressure of relegation much earlier.
