Tottenham way off in valuation of Grealish, says Villa's Bruce

The England Under-21 global has been tipped to quit Villa Park this summer.

The 29-year-old has been the subject of interest from their Championship rivals Stoke City but it now appears more and more likely that he will remain at Villa Park beyond the end of this transfer window.

Chelsea FC are set to beat Tottenham Hotspur to the signing of Jack Grealish from Aston Villa this summer, according to reports in the British media.

Spurs are the only club in the Premier League yet to make a summer signing, but have made Grealish a top target.

He looks to me to be a kid who needs to be told he is great, that "we will build a team around you".

"We don't want to lose our best players". If any agent has a player that can help us we will deal with them. "So if somebody wants to come and buy one of our players then they are going to have to find a premium and make sure that the owners are comfortable with that".

"That's their prerogative, that's what they've wanted, that's what they've put in place so that's what they've said, nobody is for sale".

"We all know what football is, but at the moment Spurs haven't got anywhere near what the owners want to consider".

However, Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens bought a 55 per cent majority shareholding of Villa last month to improve the financial stability of the club and manager Steve Bruce is confident that he no longer has to sell his best players, despite the threat of Financial Fair Play restrictions looming over them.

The Villans start their Championship season on Monday night, with Bruce's men facing Hull.
