Aston Villa set to splash the cash on another big name to keep the vultures from prising Jack Grealish away

Posted by

This summer is likely to turn into Aston Villa’s most important for some years if the way they’re approaching the transfer market is anything to go by.

Earlier in the 2020/21 campaign, a CaughtOffside exclusive noted that the Villains were intending to spend big in order to keep hold of star man, Jack Grealish.

The official Aston Villa website confirmed a deal had been agreed for Norwich City’s Emi Buendia on Monday, dashing Arsenal’s hopes of signing the player.

Not content with that incredible piece of business, Dean Smith is now targeting Southampton and England’s James Ward-Prowse, according to the Daily Mirror.

If the Midlanders are able to pull off both signings before the start of the European Championship, as they appear keen to do, it will represent something of a coup for the club.

It could also be justification of their ambition, and will show Grealish that they mean business and he doesn’t have to go anywhere else to achieve whatever he wishes in the game.

That won’t stop the vultures such as Manchester City circling, but it could make their approaches much less appealing.

  1. I believe that Buendia signing is enough to keep Jack happy, but it just shows the ambition of the owners who are fully committed to getting Aston Villa back where they belong and into Europe
    More big signings to come no doubt.

  2. Jack is going nowhere. The owners at Villa are committed to building a team and infrastructure to match and compete with the top 2 in the land, and become a successful team in Europe. He is fully aware of that and is as excited as the fans at being a huge part of the future, and becoming a legend at the club he loves.
