Aston Villa will be desperate to secure promotion to the Premier League after struggling to overcome the challenges of Fulham in the Championship play-off final last season.
The Villains haven’t exactly enjoyed the best of transfer windows as they struggled to deal with financial issues towards the start. However, the Midlands club now have new investors and things are beginning to look up, as according to The Mirror, Aston Villa’s new owners have blocked Jack Grealish’s potential exit.
Tottenham Hotspur’s dithering over Jack Grealish’s £20 million transfer from Aston Villa has backfired.
Indeed, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy gambled on driving down the sale price due to Villa’s financial woes, but times have changed with Villa now under new ownership, and now those new owners have blocked Grealish’s exit.
Jack Grealish arguably belongs in the Premier League after establishing himself as one of the standout performers in the Championship last season, but he’ll have to wait to make the step up as he won’t be going anywhere this summer.
So, Aston Villa’s owners have provided a massive transfer boost by stating that Jack Grealish won’t be going anywhere this summer. Indeed, the Englishman is arguably the Midlands club’s best player and they’d struggle to secure promotion without him, so they now could find themselves in an even better position come the end of the season if they manage to strengthen over the next week or so.
