Stan Collymore has urged Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish to join Tottenham Hotspur.
And Collymore has encouraged Grealish to leave Villa and seize his opportunity at Spurs.
Deserves the chance to have a crack at sustained high level football which , alas, we can't give him.— Stan Collymore (@StanCollymore) June 13, 2018
Let's send him on his way to a cracking club and welcome him back home someday.
Go and shine @JackGrealish1, it's all there for you kid.
Collymore is a Villa fan, so his comments on Grealish come as a somewhat of a surprise.
Villa’s team will be significantly weakened by the departure of Grealish, if he does depart this summer.
The claret and blues could be forced to sell though, as Grealish is clearly the most valuable player in their current squad.
The attacking midfielder was crucial to Steve Bruce’s side’s attacking play last season, with most their offensive moves going through him.
At Spurs, Grealish would have plenty of competition for a first-team place, with Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen already at the club.
