And the 22-year-old has gained the attention of a host of Premier League clubs, with Spurs looking to steal a march on their rivals.

According to Sky Sports News, Mauricio Pochettino is keen to bring the England Under-21 international to the club.

Chelsea, Fulham and Leicester City are also reportedly monitoring Grealish’s situation at Villa Park, with the club preparing for another huge season in the Championship.

After beating Middlesbrough over two legs in the semi-finals, Steve Bruce’s men were defeated 1-0 by Fulham in the Wembley showpiece.

Despite an overall optimistic board meeting on Monday, the Villans are expected to sell their prized asset this summer.

Grealish has two years left on his current deal and refused to sign a contract extension midway through last season.


The creative midfielder made his debut for the club in May 2014 while they were still in the Premier League.

After joining the Villans aged just six years old, he has gone on to make 92 appearances in total – scoring six goals in the process.
