Aston Villa's most famous graduate is due to return to Villa Park as British's football's only £100million player and a credit to the work of the club's academy coaches. 

Given Jack Grealish's progress at Villa, it is no surprise to see the club invest heavily in young talent.

Villa's new £14million academy site at their Bodymoor Heath training base – a 500-seat stand, fresh pitch, and other facilities that mimic Villa Park – is a symbol of their ambition to produce many more Grealishes. 

Here, Sportsmail looks at the top prospects on the Villa production line.

Ability clearly runs in the family, too, with younger brother Aaron, an 18-year-old midfielder, also on the fringes of the first-team.
