Tottenham way off in valuation of Aston Villa's Jack Grealish - Steve Bruce

Tottenham way off in valuation of Aston Villa's Jack Grealish - Steve Bruce

Chelsea have again been linked with Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish.

"We all know what football is, but at the moment Spurs haven't got anywhere near what the owners want to consider - so there's not a discussion to be had at the moment, because they've not got anywhere near the figure they demand".

"I don't think we've had a formal bid".

He said: "The owners are aware that every player has got his price".

Now, although Aston Villa are said to still be hopeful of keeping Grealish, Chelsea FC are reportedly planning to test the club's resolve with a bid before the close of the transfer window next week.

"If they can add Jack Grealish before the deadline, he has the potential to get into the England squad", Crouch wrote in the Daily Mail.




The transfer saga has been rumbling for much of the summer as Tottenham had hoped to take advantage of Villa's previously perilous financial position by signing Grealish in a cut-price deal.

However, they received a significant investment from NSWE, a company jointly owned by billionaires Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens, in July and are under no pressure to sell their prized asset.

The Championship season starts tonight with the Premier League season beginning next Friday. We all want good players, but you also need Wanyama's or whoever else you want to play in there.

The 22-year-old was back to his best last season, leading Villa to the playoff final.

However, Terry had come out in response to such suggestions, stating that he has had no part to play in Grealish's future.

'I don't want to lose Jack and neither do the owners, ' said Bruce, whose side kick off their Championship campaign against Hull City on Monday.
