If Tottenham Hotspur want to land one of their long-standing transfer targets before the window closes, they will have to stump up more than £25million.

According to the Birmingham Mail, that is the figure which at the very least Tottenham must offer Aston Villa to land the services of Jack Grealish.

Daniel Levy has been holding off a bid to exploit Villa’s financial woes, but it appears to have backfired after the current owner Tony Xia sold a majority stake of the Championship outfit to billionaires Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens.

Villa are still under pressure to sell to ease Financial Fair Play issues, but are no longer as desperate to accept a low offer.

There have been various reports that the player himself is keen to move to Tottenham in order to fulfill his dream of playing Champions League football, while there is also said to be interest from Fulham.

“The one thing that the new owners have said it that no-body is for sale,” Villa Bruce told BirminghamLive after the 2-1 win over Dynamo Dresden in which Grealish played 77 minutes.

“That’s music to my ears.

“We don’t want to lose our best players.

“We all know in football that unfortunately these things do happen.

“But we will now be doing our utmost to make sure these things do not happen and not let them go anywhere.”

Will Grealish be a Spurs player come the end of the transfer window?  Have your say below.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Levy you are an idiot, your going to miss out on another player through your stupidity. It looks like Jack Grealish is staying at Villa.

  2. Who knows really? There is a lot of posturing going (if one believes the media reports and who knows whether they know much anyway).

    LML (Last Minute Levy) has always done this type of thing to the annoyance of most (all?) Spurs fans.
    However, since he been in charge, LML has seen Spurs become a better and better team, finish higher in the PL consistently, ushered in a modern state of the art training facility and is about to do the same with a new stadium. MoPo seems to be one of the best managers Spurs have in quite some time.

    It’s certainly not all bad, is it?

  3. Grealish was a prospect with a potential for Spurs. Levy would never have paid more than 12 M to acquire this player at this point. He will help AV try to get promoted from the Championship. Loss to Spurs is a good future prospect- not a needed addition.
