John Terry is adamant that Manchester City have signed a top player after Jack Grealish’s move to the Etihad from Aston Villa.

Terry and Grealish spent four years together at Villa, three of which saw the Chelsea legend working as the team’s assistant manager before his departure last month.

According to The Sun, the 40-year-old coach saw how the star forward developed into one of the Premier League’s biggest talents and became the most expensive transfer in British football history following his £100million move to City.

The former England international wished the 25-year-old the best of luck and stated that the Citizens have signed “one of the best and hardest workers” he’s ever seen.

Terry posted a picture of the England international on Instagram with the following caption: “Good Luck [Jack Grealish].

“I know how tough this decision would have been for you mate. You gave [Aston Villa] everything.

“It was a pleasure playing alongside you & watching you become one of the BEST players in the world.

“One of the hardest working players I have ever seen and a Great man. [Manchester City] What a player you have here. All the best.”

There has been no ill feeling between the Villans and Grealish following the player’s move to City.

On the contrary, the versatile forward issued an emotional message to his former club stating that he will remain a Villa fan forever.

Grealish posted: “I’ve been at Aston Villa for 19 years and I’ve been a fan my whole life. I’ve come up through the ranks and captained my club back to the top tier of English football. It’s impossible to put my feelings into words, but I’ll try.

“When I first came to Villa I had my own personal dreams and ambitions like getting into the first team, scoring my first goal & scoring the winner in a derby. It wasn’t until we got relegated that I felt a greater sense of purpose.

“Every time I put on the Villa shirt I played with my heart on my sleeve, being given the armband was both a privilege and an honour for me and my family and I’ve loved every minute of it.

“I want to thank the manager and my teammates, I’ll never forget everything we achieved together… and to the fans who have supported me through everything, I can’t thank you enough.

“To all my coaches and all the people who work at the club behind the scenes who have done so much for me over the years – thank you.

“I’ll always be a Villa fan — I love this club with all my heart and I hope you understand my reasons for seeking a new challenge.

“The club are in great hands, the manager, the lads, the new signings coming in — it’s an exciting time to be a Villa fan. I’ll see you all again soon. Until next time. UTV [Up the Villa]. Jack.”
