Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish will return to the squad for Sunday's Premier League game at home to Fulham after being out for six weeks due to a leg injury, manager Dean Smith said.

Grealish, who has six goals and 10 assists in the league this season, sustained the injury in training before Villa's 2-1 defeat to Leicester City on February 21.

 

The 25-year-old missed six games, with Villa winning only once in his absence to slip to 10th.

"He has trained all week," Smith told reporters on Friday. "He has only had a few sessions, but he seems fit enough, so he has certainly put himself up for selection which is a good thing for everybody.

"The last six weeks haven't been what they had been previously. If anybody loses a player of the calibre of Jack, then you're going to struggle a bit.

"It will be a big boost to have him around."
