Harry Redknapp spoke highly of reported Tottenham Hotspur star Jack Grealish on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Friday morning (8:51am, March 15, 2019).

The former Tottenham manager said that he loves watching Grealish - who can operate as a winger or as an attacking midfielder - play.

Redknapp added that the 23-year-old - who is on the radar of Tottenham, according to The Daily Mail - can play at the highest level.

Redknapp said about Grealish on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Friday morning (8:51am, March 15, 2019): “Apparently they were going to take him, weren’t they? The club was in trouble and maybe Daniel (Levy) thought he could really get him very cheap.

“Then the new owners came into Villa and they didn’t need the money suddenly. I love Grealish, I think he’s a real talent, honestly. I love watching him play. I think he’s a kid who could play at the very top level.”

Tottenham Hotspur summer move?

Grealish is a very good player, and the 23-year-old will be a smart long-term signing for Tottenham in the summer transfer window.

According to The Daily Mail, Spurs wanted to sign the youngster in the summer of 2018, and it does make sense that the North London outfit are reportedly monitoring him.

So far this season, the midfielder has made 24 appearances in the Championship for Leeds so far this season, scoring four goals and providing four assists in the process, according to WhoScored.

Villa are aiming to win promotion to the Premier League via the Championship playoffs.
