Villa were in a perilous financial state earlier this summer before Billionaire businessmen Wes Edens and Nassef Sawiris injected a "significant investment" into the club, in return for co-ownership with Dr Tony Xia.

According to Villa boss Steve Bruce, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has offered nowhere near enough to tempt Villa into selling midfielder Grealish, 22.

Spurs' original bid was believed to be around £20million, but Villa want closer to £40million before they consider doing the deal. "The one thing the owners have made pretty clear is that no one is for sale", he said. We all want good players, but you also need Wanyama's or whoever else you want to play in there. The best thing the owners have been able to do is not let anybody go on the cheap.

Redknapp, who managed Tottenham for just under four seasons between 2008 and 2012, said that Grealish needs to go somewhere where he will play consistent first-team football and that Tottenham are now overloaded with attacking midfield options.

On Tuesday, Downing asked how the jury could believe Gates "after all the lies you told and fraud you committed". Prosecutors also say the men falsified documents to lie to banks in order to qualify Manafort for loans.

"If anybody wants to come and buy our players, they're going to have to find a premium and make sure the owners are comfortable with it", said Bruce.

Terry posted a comment on Instagram while congratulating Villa defender James Chester on his appointment as new Aston Villa club captain. The summer transfer window closes at 5 PM next Thursday afternoon.

The 22-year-old has an eye on a place in Gareth Southgate's England squad with the 2020 European Championships in mind, and he will have noticed how home-grown midfield talents like Eric Dier, Harry Winks and Dele Alli have earned worldwide recognition after flourishing under Mauricio Pochettino at Spurs.
