Despite being linked with several players during the last two transfer windows, Tottenham failed to add a single player to their squad.

Among the players who were heavily linked with Spurs was Aston Villa midfielder, Jack Grealish. It looked like a move to Spurs was inevitable for Grealish last summer but Aston Villa was acquired by new owners who priced him out of a move.

Since then the Englishman has once again had a great season in the Championship, as he has played a vital part in Villa’s fight for promotion back to the Premier League.

Former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood, who also managed Jack Grealish during his stint at Villa, has said that he believes the 23-year-old is good enough to play for England.

In fact, the former midfielder insisted that had Grealish moved to Spurs last summer, he would have already been part of the England squad.

Speaking to Sky Sports’ the Debate, Sherwood said, “He (Grealish) should be playing for England in my opinion. If he got that move to Tottenham that fell through in the last hour he’d be playing for England. No doubt.”
