Jack Grealish has reportedly been told he will not be leaving Aston Villa
Jack Grealish is going nowhere. According to Sky Sports, anyway.
The Aston Villa midfielder's future has been the subject of plenty of speculation this summer, with Tottenham believed to be one of several teams trying to sign him from his boyhood club. After Spurs finally decided to make an opening offer for Grealish on Tuesday, it now seems the 22-year-old will be staying put at Villa Park for the foreseeable future.
According to Sky Sports' sources, Grealish has been told by the club's new billionaire owners that he will not be leaving the club before the close of the transfer window on Thursday afternoon.
The bid from Spurs has been rejected, and Villa any further bid - be it from the North London club or any other team - will also be rebuffed.

It was assumed that Grealish would leave Villa this summer after the club lost their Championship Play-off final to Fulham at the end of the season. Spurs are thought to have bid £25m for him, a fee many seem to think was substantially below his true value.
The player was reportedly interested in the move as he wants to play Champions League football this season but will now turn his attention back to helping his current employers back to the top flight of English football.
