Gary Lineker has praised reported Tottenham Hotspur target Jack Grealish on Twitter for his performance for Aston Villa against West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday evening.

The former Tottenham Hotspur striker was impressed with the display produced by Grealish during the second leg of the Championship playoff semi-final tie between West Brom and Villa.

The 23-year-old attacking midfielder was the heartbeat of the Villans, who lost the second leg 1-0 but won the tie 4-3 on penalties during the shootout.

Grealish is one of the best attacking players in the Championship, and the youngster was brilliant against West Brom.

The 23-year-old drove his team forward, created chances for his teammates and was constantly a nuisance for the West Brom defence.

Grealish, who can also operate as a winger, is wanted by Premier League club Tottenham, according to The Mirror.

Villa will now face either Leeds United or Derby County in the Championship playoff final for a place in the Premier League next season.
