Jack Grealish is set to turn down approaches from Tottenham to sign an extended deal with Aston Villa, according to the Sunday Express.

The midfielder was heavily linked with a summer transfer switch to Tottenham but a deal failed to materialise.


Spurs had hoped to land the youngster on the cheap due to Villa’s financial difficulties, but a takeover from an American financer and Egyptian billionaire handed control back to the Midlands club.

Grealish stayed at Villa Park, with the Championship outfit refusing to sell despite an 11th hour £30million bid.

Now the player who has two years to run on his current deal looks set to sign a new contract at Villa Park, which will see the inclusion of a £60million transfer release clause.

According to the report, Tottenham are still believed to be keen to move for Grealish. Can you really see Daniel Levy paying £60m for the same player when he would hardly stretch to £30m?
