England: Andy Dunn on Jack Grealish's 'importance' to squad
Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish has been told that Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are the “only” teams that could sign him by Dean Windass, with Manchester United not prepared to “pay £100m”. Grealish has impressed for Villa after helping them get promoted back to the Premier League and escaping relegation last season.
He has helped them kick on in the current campaign, with Dean Smith’s side currently sat comfortably in mid-table.
Former Hull and Middlesbrough striker Windass has backed Grealish to go right to top and believes he will learn from his recent off-field mistakes.
Speaking to Football Fan Cast, Windas said: “Yeah, in today’s market, forget about what he’s done off the field, we all make mistakes, I’ve been there and worn the t-shirt.
“But he’s a talent, local boy, he loves the club, he’s going to make mistakes he’s a young boy, he’s a young kid, and these young kids just need reminding every now and then.

“They’re on that much money now that the world is their oyster.
“Yeah, he’s been done drink driving, and now he’s paid the price, does it really hurt players nowadays that they’ve been done drink driving?
“You can afford to get a driver, it’s not as if they’ve got to get the bus.
“It’s wrong what he did, he’ll pay that price, and you’ve got to learn from it.

“We’ve all got learn from mistakes. I’ve been there.
You learn from mistakes, and Dean [Smith]’s probably good for him, pull him to the side [and say] let your football do the talking and stop doing daft things off the field. But he’ll learn from that.
“But £100m, I think it was £80m before he signed his contract, he had an £80m clause in his contract.
“So £100m is a fair valuation now without a shadow of a doubt.
“He could go in Man City’s team tomorrow, and he’d be a good player.
“That’s the only teams he would go to, Liverpool or Man City or Tottenham.
“Manchester United would sign him tomorrow, but they won’t pay £100m.”
Grealish has been involved in 10 of Villa’s 21 league goals this season and the 25-year-old will be looking to continue his good form for the remainder of the season.
