Richard Keys has insisted that Aston Villa’s star player, Jack Grealish is set to leave the Premier League survivors this summer after keeping his boyhood club in the league (BeIN Sports).
Spurs were linked strongly with a move for Grealish in the summer of 2018 and were even said to have made a £25m bid (Telegraph).
However, then Villa manager Steve Bruce later revealed that Spurs simply left their business too late, admitting that Grealish would have joined them if Levy had bid earlier.
Twelve months on, after keeping Villa in the Premier League, Grealish is now being tipped for a big move.
Keys said: “You know he won’t [stay] now. We all know he’s going. He’s done his bit.”
Fellow pundit, Andy Gray added: “He would be a better player in a better team in my opinion because not so much will be expected of him. He won’t go on to a pitch and think if I don’t play we might be struggling today. He will go on with other terrific players.”
The Daily Star have linked Spurs and Everton with a possible summer move for the midfielder but claim Villa value their prized asset at £50m.
The 24-year-old featured 36 times for Villa in the Premier League this season, scoring eight times including their only goal in the 1-1 draw that kept them up on the final day against West Ham (Transfermarkt).
Spurs Web Opinion
I have been massively impressed by Grealish this season. I have thought for the majority of the season he has led that Villa side and he is the reason they have stayed in the Premier League. However, it is time for him to move on and join a bigger club who can provide him with European football – he will certainly have options.
