Bruce: 'Tottenham Hotspur nowhere near Jack Grealish price'

Tottenham transfer news Jack Grealish is a target

Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce has warned Tottenham there is no cheap solution in their pursuit of Jack Grealish.

Spurs seemed to be closing in on completing the deal, but Bruce believes Villa haven't even received a proper offer, saying: "I don't think we've had a formal bid".

The club must still comply with Financial Fair Play and selling Grealish would virtually solve the issue but Bruce has told Spurs they can no longer agree a knockdown price. "The best thing the [new] owners have been able to do is not let anybody go on the cheap", the manager said. "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".

"If they can add Jack Grealish before the deadline, he has the potential to get into the England squad", Crouch wrote in the Daily Mail.

However, new majority shareholders Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens have steadied the ship after buying out Tony Xia.

Spurs remain one of just twoPremier League clubs alongside Burnley not to have made any signings in this summer's transfer window.

"The story has come out because we've taken a player from a certain agent".

Redknapp, who managed Tottenham for just under four seasons between 2008 and 2012, said that Grealish needs to go somewhere where he will play consistent first-team football and that Tottenham are now overloaded with attacking midfield options.

His ability to drag Villa up the pitch single-handedly was a hallmark of his stand-out performances for Villa last season and he was easily their best player during their play-off final defeat to Fulham at Wembley in May.

'I don't want to lose Jack and neither do the owners, ' said Bruce, whose side kick off their Championship campaign against Hull City on Monday.
