Jamie O’Hara suggested on The Transfer Tavern show on talkSPORT (6:53pm, June 8, 2019) that Jack Grealish will not leave Aston Villa in the summer transfer window.

The Mirror has reported of interest in Grealish from Tottenham Hotspur, with the attacking midfielder claimed to have a release clause of £60 million.

 

Formers Spurs and Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder O’Hara does not believe that the 23-year-old, who can also operate as a winger, wants to leave Villa this summer, now that the Villans have won promotion to the Premier League.

O’Hara said about Grealish on The Transfer Tavern show on talkSPORT (6:53pm, June 8, 2019): "I think Grealish wants to stay. He is a proper Brummie boy, he loves that football club.

"He really wants to be there, he is now the captain, the catalyst of the football team. Villa is a huge football club, a huge club.”

Aston Villa stay

Grealish is a very good attacking player who was key to Villa winning promotion to the Premier League via the Championship playoffs this season.

The Villans will be aiming to make an instant impact on their return to the top flight of English football, and the 23-year-old will be a key player.

Grealish has been at Villa his entire professional club football career so far, and now that he is the captain of the Villans, he will certainly want to stay at Villa Park - at least for one more season.
