Tottenham Hotspur fans convinced Grealish tweet means midfielder will sign

Jack Grealish has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur in recent weeks.

The midfielder was one of the first members of Aston Villa’s squad to be named in the transfer gossip pages following the club’s failure to earn promotion back into the Premier League.

Steve Bruce’s side reached the Championship playoff final, but ended up losing 1-0 to Fulham at Wembley.

On Monday, The Mirror reported that Tottenham are not rushing their pursuit of Grealish, who scored three goals and created eight assists in all competitions last season.

The publication states that Villa want upwards of £40m for the midfielder due to the club’s cash worries, but Spurs are taking the patient approach.

Grealish has not been vocal about the speculation, but following England’s opening Group G match against Tunisia at the World Cup, the midfielder tweeted praise for Spurs star Harry Kane.

The striker was the hero for the Three Lions as he scored in stoppage time to give his nation a 2-1 triumph in their first match of the campaign.

Many Spurs fans jumped to conclusions after reading Grealish’s tweet.
