Spurs target Grealish to ink Aston Villa deal with buyout clause

Jack Grealish is ready to sign a new deal with Aston Villa.

The Daily Express says the midfielder is set to sign a new deal at Aston Villa with a £60million release clause.

Villa had turned down a £25million offer from Spurs but a new contract will include a set fee for clubs to meet.

That figure is going to be £60m which is likely to scare off Mauricio Pochettino's team.

In August, Villa boss Steve Bruce said the club was in talks with Grealish but there was one big hurdle preventing a deal.

"We hope to reward him, we're in talks with him now. I hope that it can progress," he said.
