Aston Villa fans in the Transfer Tavern will be watching with interest about news of one of their star players and his future after it has been revealed they could lose him in the summer.
The Mirror are claiming Jack Grealish could leave the Villa Park outfit, should they fail to achieve promotion, with Leicester City thought to be in a position to make an offer. The media publication are stating that the Foxes could be prepared to make a bid of £20million to test their resolve.
Indeed, should Steve Bruce fail to steer the club back to the Premier League, those behind the scenes are understood to be likely to cut costs and Grealish is clearly considered a sizeable asset, considering his talent.
The 22-year-old has produced a number of impressive displays this season, which has alerted a number of clubs, although Villa believes they can get him to sign a new deal should they win promotion.
The midfielder is thought to be offered a bumper deal to boost his wages from £20,000-a-week, which has two years left, but should they fail to get into next season’s Premier League competition, they could find it difficult to keep him.
The Aston Villa fans in the Tavern will be desperate for the club to keep Grealish for as long as possible and will be concerned with their chances if they can not get into the top-flight next year. Some punters may be concerned with the offer that could be made by the Foxes, as some may feel an offer of £20m could be too difficult to turn down.
