Spurs lead the race to sign Jack Grealish

Tottenham Hotspur are favourites to sign 22-year-old Jack Grealish from Aston Villa.

Grealish has revealed he is ready to leave boyhood club Aston Villa in order to play premier league football.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is yet to commence bidding on the Villa starlet, taking his time as he looks to exploit the Villains cash worries.

Grealish is confident that the London club will come in for him, as he looks set to land a five-year-deal.

Spurs boss, Mauricio Pochettino, is keen for Grealish to provide competition for England star Dele Alli in behind Harry Kane.

“He needs strong opposition to give his best. It’s his character. He is so competitive that when it’s easy he’s not interested.

“In training sessions, when you do finishing practice without any opposition, sometimes you have to say ‘come on Dele, you have the capacity to score’. But if you put opposition there, he will score an unbelievable goal.”

Several premier league rivals are also monitoring the availability of Grealish, including West Ham United and Everton.
