Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish sends two-word Instagram message to Manchester City star Phil Foden, after winning award

Phil Foden was handed the Premier League’s Young Player of the Year award over the course of the weekend. Manchester City star Foden has been sensational for the Premier League champions over the past 12 months and Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish responded to his Instagram post.

Foden, 21, clocked up a whopping 50 appearances all competitions – having a hand in 26 goals throughout. Playing 28 times in the Premier League, the six-time England international scored nine goals and laid on five assists. It was easily the City academy product’s best season if his burgeoning career.

Little surprise, then, that Foden is the 2020-21 YPOTS – while Kevin De Bruyne was handed Player of the Season. That is, despite the form of Harry Kane and Ruben Dias. But Foden was more than deserving of his award and he posted on Instagram after receiving the news.

Grealish, meanwhile, remains a key target for Manchester City. Having been a nomination for the Player of the Season award, Grealish has since impressed during the warm-up Euro 2020 games for England. In 26 Premier League games last season, he scored six and created 12 more.

The Mail claim City have held talks with Villa over a move to sign Grealish – a move that will cost £100million. It could see Grealish and Foden team up beyond the end of Euro 2020. Villa ace Grealish responded to Manchester City star Foden on Instagram, saying his award was “fully deserved”.
