Tottenham are set to complete the signing of Jack Grealish from Aston Villa within a matter of days, based on a report by Football.London.
The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to Spurs for the past couple of months after his failure to help his side secure a place in the Premier League as they lost 1-0 to Fulham in a hard-fought play-off final at Wembley.
Aston Villa CEO Tony Xia has already admitted the Championship club must ‘player trade’ in order to meet Financial Fair Play restrictions earlier this week.
And based on Football.London’s new claim, Grealish could seal his move to London as early as next week, before the team flies out to begin this summer’s pre-season tour.
Spurs reportedly want Grealish to mingle with the squad in time for the three-match trip to the United States, where they will be playing against the likes of AS Roma, Barcelona and AC Milan.
