Report: Jack Grealish has committed to playing for the Republic of Ireland

The highly-rated youngster is thought to have opted for the boys in green...

Jack Grealish could make his debut for the Republic of Ireland in next month's friendly game against USA at the Aviva Stadium after apparently deciding where he wants to play his international football.

The Irish Times report that the 19-year-old made the decision to opt for Ireland after resolving his club future by signing a four year deal with Aston Villa last week.

If it comes to pass it will be a huge coup for Ireland as the English FA have been strongly pursuing the talented youngster for the last year or so.

Martin O'Neill isn't expected to include Grealish in next month's European Championship qualifier against Scotland as he wants to keep faith with the players who earned four points from two games against Germany and Gibraltor. However, the player's senior debut should happen against the US on November 18.
