Reliable Aston Villa reporter Ashley Preece shared his take on the Jack Grealish situation on Friday lunchtime.
And his update, as expected, had plenty of Villa supporters talking on social media.
Grealish has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester City this summer, with recent reports suggesting a double swoop for the 25-year-old and Tottenham’s Harry Kane could cost City between £175-215m.
Preece, Villa’s correspondent for Birmingham Live, revealed Villa expect to have clarity on Grealish’s future by the end of the month.
Do you think Grealish will leave Villa this summer?
He’s currently having some time off in Greece following the European Championships, and according to Preece, even Grealish doesn’t know how his situation will end.
Birmingham Live have been told that the Villa captain is still expected to sign a new deal, but as we know in the transfer window, things can change at any time and Grealish will ultimately be the one to decide where he plays next season.
Villa fans react
Preece shared his story on Grealish on Twitter and came in for plenty of praise from these Villa fans, with one describing the story as ‘great’.
“Good article. I hope to see Jack at our club for a long time to come, with him as Captain lifting trophies galore. I can dream right!?”
“And breathe. Cheers Ash, some credible clarity at last.”
“Great piece! Thanks for outlining the facts from opinions so clearly.”
“Thanks for the update, can always count on you for clarity”
“Good article. Even more clarity than publishers you have to pay a subscription for…”
