Steve Bruce reveals why Spurs have not signed Jack Grealish yet

Spurs seemed to be closing in on completing the deal, but Bruce believes Villa haven't even received a proper offer, saying: "I don't think we've had a formal bid".

British media reports have linked the highly-rated Grealish with a £20-million switch to Tottenham, who have yet to make a signing in the close season. The one thing that the owners have made pretty clear is no one is for sale. They're aware, though, that every player has got his price. "So if somebody wants to come and buy one of our players then they are going to have to find a premium and make sure that the owners are comfortable with that". "We don't want to lose our best players but it's football and it might happen", he said.

"So there is not a discussion to be had at the moment, because they've got nowhere near the figure they demanded". Villa were in a perilous financial state earlier this summer before Billionaire businessmen Wes Edens and Nassef Sawiris injected a "significant investment" into the club, in return for co-ownership with Dr Tony Xia.

Both Gates and Manafort were indicted last October by a federal grand jury on 12 charges, including conspiracy against the U.S. He also has repeatedly made comments that some legal experts said may prejudice the jury against the prosecution.

However, Bruce also added Villa have no plans to sell their best players with just days left to go of the transfer window.

"We're a Championship club and Spurs are in the Champions League", he said.

"The story has come out because we've taken a player from a certain agent".

It's true of just about anything in life- when you're standing still, you're actually falling behind. I'm just not sure, they've got themselves in a situation now where they're desperate.

Grealish is a product of the Villa academy and was part of the team that lost in the Championship play-off final last season.

Boss Steve Bruce is hopeful of completing a deal for the 27-year-old, who now plays for German Second Division outfit FC Ingolstadt.

The Villans start their Championship season on Monday night, with Bruce's men facing Hull.
