Aston Villa's financial woes have been well-documented in the aftermath of their 1-0 Championship play-off final defeat to Fulham last month – and playmaker Jack Grealish may be moving on.
Villa missing out on promotion means Steve Bruce's men are struggling for cash, and their most wanted asset is homegrown talent Grealish, who has come up through the ranks with his boyhood club.
Grealish, 22, hit three goals and six assists in 30 games for Villa this past season, and appears to have matured thanks to the influence of grizzled veterans like John Terry and Mile Jedinak.
Grealish's stock is rising again, and Premier League clubs are now queueing up to take advantage of Villa's financial situation with summer bids for the attacking midfielder.
It's claimed that Levy wants to offer defender Cameron Carter-Vickers and midfielder Josh Onomah to Villa on loan in part-exchange for Grealish, in a move which would see Onomah return to Villa Park.
The 21-year-old midfielder hit four goals and three assists for Villa last season having been sent on loan there by Tottenham, and if Spurs get their way, he could be heading back to Villa for another year.
However, Villa fans have been taking to Twitter to suggest that Levy's planned offer is 'laughable', and that Villa should take cash only given that Onomah failed to really impress during his first loan spell with the club, with few wanting to see the youngster return as part of a deal for Grealish.
If there is deal for Grealish involving Onomah it has to be a permanent transfer. #avfc— AndyK2 (@AndyVilla80) June 10, 2018
Personally I'd rather give our own youngsters a chance, If Onomah was any good Spurs wouldn't be loaning him out, and from what I've seen all season at #avfc he's not that good,— Nigelwv (@NWV13) June 10, 2018
Rumours of Onomah and Carter Vickers getting offered as part of a deal on loan would only take it if they were both offered permanently— The AVFC Faithful (@TheAVFC4aithful) June 10, 2018
All this hear say about grealish going to spurs and them giving us back Onomah on loan is scaring me never liked him last season let alone this season coming!!! #avfc— Chelsea webster (@chelsea_webby) June 10, 2018
Onomah returning, even if on loan, would be great. #AVFC aren’t going to add a player of his calibre on the market for the wage cost and he actually played well when he wasn’t played out of position. https://t.co/PEYpMOvWU6— alex carson (@_alexcarson) June 10, 2018
Daniel Levy needs to pay up or jog on. Give us Harry Winks— Z (@zzztep1) June 10, 2018
No thank you. We have Callum O'Hare who in my opinion should have been selected ahead of Onomah last season.— Sandeep (@deepsand14) June 10, 2018
