Former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Paul Robinson has claimed on FansBet's official website that he believes Spurs will re-enter the January transfer window for Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish.

Spurs failed to land the 23-year-old on deadline day despite reportedly making an offer of £25million. Some reports have now claimed Villa are to hand the England youth international a big pay rise.

Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy failed to complete one signing throughout the entire transfer window, also missing out on players such as Matthijs de Ligt and Malcom.


In his FansBet column, Robinson claimed that Spurs will re-bid for 5ft 7in Grealish in January or indeed in the summer, and had expected them to sign the Villa star.

"I expected Jack Grealish to go through on deadline day but Villa held firm to their credit. It’ll be a player I imagine they’ll go back in for in January or next summer," Robinson said.

"It’s usually like a domino effect with Spurs; when one or two leave you see them sign a couple, but nobody of note has left all summer despite the constant speculation over the likes of [Toby] Alderweireld and [Mousa] Dembele."

Grealish has two years remaining on his contract with Championship side Villa, and that will come as somewhat of a concern to Bruce. If he does not offer Grealish a new deal before next summer, the star will almost certainly be sold.

Spurs already boast stars such as Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Josh Onomah in the number 10 role, but it is clear that Pochettino wants to add more attacking-midfield depth to his side ahead of another campaign fighting on four fronts.
