Tottenham must pay 'premium' price to sign Grealish from Aston Villa

Tottenham must pay 'premium' price to sign Grealish from Aston Villa

Aston Villa manager has revealed Tottenham are nowhere near the Championship club's valuation of attacking midfielder Jack Grealish.

Spurs' original bid was believed to be around £20million, but Villa want closer to £40million before they consider doing the deal.

It's claimed that Chelsea are set to launch a £20M move to sign Grealish from Villa. The one thing that the owners have made pretty clear is no one is for sale.

'We don't want to lose our best players, but they're aware of course that everyone has their 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. The good thing they have been able to do is not let anybody go on the cheap.

According to Pence, this militarized Space Force would be part of the Defense Department, and they meant to create it by 2020. President Trump has also called on Congress to appropriate $8 billion for space security systems over the next five years.

"We're a Championship club and Spurs are in the Champions League", he said.

"If anybody wants to come and buy our players, they're going to have to find a premium and make sure the owners are comfortable with it", said Bruce.

Pochettino has a proven record when it comes to bringing talented players through and the manager recognises the need to strengthen his midfield as Winks and Victor Wanyama have struggled with injuries during pre-season, while the futures of Mousa Dembele and Moussa Sissoko remain uncertain.

Terry departed the Villans after the club lost 1-0 to Fulham in the Championship play-off final at Wembley Stadium in May, meaning the Midlands side will once again ply their trade in England's second-highest division.

Grealish is still considered one of the most promising young players in English football, despite his development hitting a few bumps in the road.
