Tottenham have made a £15million bid for Jack Grealish.

Given Aston Villa’s failure to gain promotion back to the Premier League, and their subsequent financial issues, it is widely accepted that Grealish will be leaving this summer.
However, Villa have apparently put a £40m asking price on the 22-year-old, so Spurs’ offer falls way short of that valuation.
There is no word if Villa have responded to the offer as of yet, but it seems likely that they’ll reject it and ask for a bid which comes closer to their valuation.
There are reportedly a number of clubs interested in the England U21 international so there shouldn’t be any need to accept the offer, although the club’s financial worries could dictate otherwise.
