Bruce: Spurs nowhere near Aston Villa's asking price for Grealish

The 22-year-old is an attacking midfielder who has become a key player for Championship side Villa, but that has seen Premier League clubs circle for him.

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". There's been discussions and that's been going on all summer. The one thing that the owners have made pretty clear is no one is for sale.

"We don't want to lose our best players".

He said: "The owners are aware that every player has got his price".

"The one thing we're able to do is be in a much better bargaining position because now, if Spurs want to buy him, they will have to buy him at a premium that in the last few weeks they haven't been able to get to".

"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.

The 22-year-old has an eye on a place in Gareth Southgate's England squad with the 2020 European Championships in mind, and he will have noticed how home-grown midfield talents like Eric Dier, Harry Winks and Dele Alli have earned worldwide recognition after flourishing under Mauricio Pochettino at Spurs.

"The thought of Mendes running the club is upsetting", he said.

Pochettino has a proven record when it comes to bringing talented players through and the manager recognises the need to strengthen his midfield as Winks and Victor Wanyama have struggled with injuries during pre-season, while the futures of Mousa Dembele and Moussa Sissoko remain uncertain. If he goes to a club where is only a bit-part player, I don't know where he is going. If he brings me the quality of player that Wolves have signed past year then I'd also be delighted.
