Tottenham fans are growing increasingly frustrated with Daniel Levy and their transfer business, as reports claim it will be a couple of weeks before the Jack Grealish deal is wrapped up due to Aston Villa’s asking price.
Well, Spurs fans, it’s happened again. Every year there is the promise of early and decisive action in the transfer market and every year it doesn’t happen.
Fans are getting fed up of the panic buys late in the transfer window, like the deal for Moussa Sissoko in 2016, and it looks like the deal for Grealish could drag on even longer.
The North Londoners have been heavily linked with a move for the feisty Villa youngster all summer, but the latest reports claim Levy will wait it out for a better price.
According to The Express, the Championship side want £40m for their prized asset, so negotiations will continue to bring that price down over the “coming weeks”.
Villa’s precarious financial situation means this is actually a very savvy business move from Tottenham, as they will eventually be forced to sell for a lower price, but fans are fed up waiting around for last minute deals.
