Loads of Tottenham fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as it looks like Daniel Levy’s negotiating tactic for Jack Grealish has backfired.
According to The Mirror, Aston Villa’s new owners will block any potential exit for Grealish.
Levy has been biding his time in the chase for the young Englishman, knowing that Villa’s precarious financial situation would eventually force them to sell up for less than their asking price.
However, the Championship club have recently taken on new investors, and the report from The Mirror claims Spurs’ “dithering” has cost them.
Villa’s new leadership have a combined wealth of £40billion, so it’s difficult to see a scenario where they allow their prized asset to leave on the cheap.
Spurs are facing the prospect of losing Mousa Dembele this summer, and Pochettino desperately needs someone capable of driving the ball forward from midfield.
Grealish would have certainly helped in that regard, and fans are furious that Levy has messed this one up. You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

So basically we’re not signing anyone and we’re selling Alderweireld to United for cash so Levy/Lewis can get a new yacht. Safe.

This is every transfer window. Wait & wait & wait. Rumors @ the start of the window all the players they intend 2 sign & then the mad dash @ the end only to come up just short. Then throw hands up & tell the fans “Hey we tried” It’s just so frustrating
