Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea target Jack Grealish is reportedly set to sign a new deal at Aston Villa which will be sensational news for Villa fans, but will be a huge blow for Spurs supporters that were hoping that Grealish would be their first signing when the window reopens in January.
As reported by the Express, it’s claimed everything are in place for Grealish to extend his current current with Villa, which has less than two years on, and it will be a huge boost for Villa fans who saddened with their side’s 2-1 lost at home to Sheffield Wednesday yesterday afternoon.
Grealish would be very essential for Villa who are hoping for a promotion to the top-flight.
The 23-year-old was linked with a move away from Villa throughout the summer and Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham side were all set to secure his signature, but the Championship side played hard ball and refused to sell him to the Premier League club.
With Villa set on securing the long-term future of Jack Grealish they are ready to add in a £60m release clause in his new contract, which is sure to put off a whole host of clubs looking to strengthen their midfield, but having been watched by England’s assistant manager Steve Holland in midweek then if Grealish can continue to improve in the Championship then a call-up to the national squad could see his stock significantly rise and there could be a team willing to pay the monster fee for his services.
