Loads of Tottenham fans are raging at the latest update on Jack Grealish, as Sky Sports claims they will not even bid for the Aston Villa talisman.
According to Sky Sports, Tottenham will not bid for Grealish after being told he is not for sale.
Earlier in the summer, Villa’s precarious financial situation left Daniel Levy in a powerful negotiating position, but new investment at Villa Park has ended any hopes of a deal.
The new leadership clearly didn’t take too kindly to Levy’s waiting game, and after reports yesterday that they would not sell the 22 year-old, the deal now looks completely dead as the report claims Spurs will not even make a bid.
Mauricio Pochettino had clearly identified the versatile youngster as a top target this summer, so this is a bit of a nightmare for all involved.
The North Londoners are dangerously thin in the middle of the park, and Grealish’s ability to play as a winger or more centrally would have killed two birds with one stone.
Loads of fans have been reacting to the news that the deal is dead, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

Whatever happened it’s a case of Levy being Levy and his old tricks are coming back to bite him in the arse. Still though there’s so many players out there how could Grealish be the only real target. Baffles me.

I want Daniel Levy gone from Tottenham, he’s brought nothing but misery. This summer transfer window has been a total shambles and they can’t even sign a player from the championship in Jack Grealish that alone should be a red flag how embarrassing #DeadlineDay
