Tottenham & Stoke City
If the rumours are true, Tottenham and Stoke City having been circling Aston Villa like vultures.
It’s been well-reported in the aftermath of Villa’s playoff final defeat to Fulham that the Midlands club have been plunged into financial crisis.
It had recently been confirmed that Aston Villa owe 11 million pounds in transfer fees. While there are reports that Villa’s total debt problems stand at 75 million pounds.
However Aston Villa finally received some big news over the weekend. Billionaire friends Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens have bought into the famous English club and they’ve averted any imminent crisis.
Jack Grealish & James Chester
Tottenham have been linked with a move for Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish.
Stoke City are rumoured to be interested in Villa defender James Chester.
Yet, on Monday morning it appears that both players may end up staying at Villa Park.
Journalist Neil Moxley has posted several tweets on Monday morning explaining why Grealish and Chester are likely to remain at the Championship club.
Interestingly, Grealish’s agents have a close relationship with Tottenham which could still cause some issues moving forward.
