Hi all hope your all well I've tried searching everywhere to see if there is a release clause in Jack's contract but can't find anything I know Ed02 is very clued up on things like this and perhaps they could shed some light on this? Personally I think Jack does have one and it would be in the region of 70-80 million mark and I'd say IMO that's a fair valuation.

{Ed002's Note - Release clauses and even termination clauses in England are very rare. If he is sold it will require negotiation.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2021 22:16:59
No release clause daz, and if he had 1 for 80 million then why would City allegedly be preparing a 100 million offer, you’ve answered your own question there lol.

25 Jun 2021 22:28:01
How come they are so popular abroad Ed? It seems like nearly every player in Spain has one, sometimes the youngsters over there are rumoured to have ridiculous ones before there even close to being stars.

{Ed002's Note - It varies Chi’s - in Spain and Portugal there is a legal requirement for “buy out” clauses - in much of German and Italy there are “termination clauses”. In France, the Netherlands and England it is less common.}

25 Jun 2021 22:33:06
Thanks Ed that's why I couldn't find it then. I do believe he will sign 1 more year then if we don't get a European spot he will leave. I also believe that Man C are more in the market for a striker rather than someone like Jack.

{Ed002's Note - I suspect it will continue as we have previously discussed - AV wont want to sell, if the player wants a way out then they will ask for around £100M and perhaps accept £89M.}

25 Jun 2021 22:38:23
Main word there Whack allegedly 👍👍.

26 Jun 2021 00:32:24
For sure daz, like last year he was going to United, rumour had it he had the Red Devil tattoo on his arse ready for the big move, then no bid from united😂😂.

26 Jun 2021 09:07:17
As I said previously this is a win win for us, if he goes we have circa £100 million to invest in the squad, if he stays we have one of the best players in the premier league in our squad. Happy days. 😁.

26 Jun 2021 15:07:53
John do you think 100m is enough to replace Grealish? Might sound silly but I think we all agree we can't replace him directly but do you think 3 x 40M players would be more valuable to Villa than Grealish? As mad as it sounds, I'm torn :-)

26 Jun 2021 16:23:37
So for me BK I genuinely think if you can strike the right deals I think it could benefit us, so I have said on a previous post if City want Jack, they have to include Jack Harrison as part of the deal we then have something like £80 million as an adjustment.

As an example you could use that cash to sign the likes of Abraham and Ward-Prowse and move McGinn further forward. I also think that the other benefit of something like I have outlined is that such an approach gives you options so you could play with 2 quality strikers up top.

I am not saying I want Jack to leave but if that happens I don’t think it’s the end of the world either.

26 Jun 2021 17:22:53
Thanks John, understand your perspective and agree Jack Harrison would probably match Grealishs output (goals and assists) but for me we still need to replace his creativity and his ability to carry the ball and take the ball in tight areas, his ability to do this takes so much pressure off us at times and allows us to reset defensively or alternatively attack at speed. A massively ambitious option would be Houssem Aouar at Lyon but we have zero chance of getting him and that's the real problem for me with losing Grealish, the players that would slot in seemlessly and help us replace him (in the aggregate) are most likely unobtainable!

26 Jun 2021 17:51:51
BK I don’t think you can get a like for like replacement for Jack not too many like him about in fact I can’t think of anyone at the moment to be honest, however even if there was one I think there aspirations would be higher than joining us at present sadly.

25 Jun 2021 13:02:01
Is the rumours true about jck or bs every paper and on net saying its a done deal 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬.

{Ed077's Note - what rumour?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2021 13:44:56
About jck going to city ed.

{Ed002's Note - They are interested in him - this has been explained.}

25 Jun 2021 15:58:14
Villa4eva, it is not a done deal and as far as I am aware Villa have not received any offer. In fact there appears to be talk of Villa considering a new bumper contract for Jack.

25 Jun 2021 13:14:26
I thought that was you I spotted in the Twilight Zone earlier Ed007 😁.

{Ed077's Note - I dont follow much of the mainstream "media" these days so wasnt sure which club Grealish was getting linked with today.}

25 Jun 2021 07:52:06
I see the best newspaper in the world The rubbish I mean The Sun reporting Jacks agents have apparently been given the green light for them to get the transfer of Jack to Man City. Got to love The rubbish ooops done it again the The Sun sorry.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2021 09:58:49
I would love to hear a word from Grealish. No I am not going anywhere Villa is a place to be in a decades to come. Villa are not selling Villa are buying. Villa is coming for all of you. Resistance is futile.

25 Jun 2021 10:45:07
Daily Mail are now reporting deal almost agreed with Man City for £100m.

25 Jun 2021 11:19:13
What is the point in a having a league if a player has a good season at any club Man City come in buy them and everyone is back to square one.

25 Jun 2021 11:22:30
Daily mail have written an article and credited the sun as their source. It’s all coming from one, very untrustworthy source👍

He may go, but the owners have proven throughout their time here, they know what their doing, losing Grealish is monumental for Villa, but the people you’d trust to keep progressing us in his leaving, their already in place and doing a mighty fine job.

Personally, I think he’ll stay atleast another season. He had a brilliant season just gone but also missed a chunk with injury, Man City although have a bigger squad, they also have a much more congested fixture list. Plus they’ve never spent more then 60/ 65 million on a player, going to cost them double that for Grealish, with it all upfront. I think they’ll try, realise our owners aren’t going to be bullied, and go back in for Kane.

25 Jun 2021 11:27:53
Talking of Man City, Spurs, and the rest of the big 6 or should I say failed Super league teams. Has anyone seen how much they have to pay for causing uproar. 20 million between them to the lower leagues. That is a god damn joke bare in mind we are talking of City spending over 200 million on 2 players. Premier League and FA should grow a pair of balls and put the ****ers under a transfer embargo of least find them something that might cause them a bit of worry no only in our league do we find them 20 million between the 6.

25 Jun 2021 12:15:09
I hope its all smoke and mirrors with these Grealish rumours. Agent leaks City in for him, Villa start new contract negotiations, new improved contract signed, Agent gets a cut, Grealish stays at the club he loves, 2 fingers stuck up to our rivals that you CAN'T just buy who you want =everyone's a winner. Worked for years with the likes of Messi and Ramos. Just the usual contract/ money chicanery that goes on in the world of football. Nothing to see here, please move along.

{Ed002's Note - You seem to have drifted in to the twilight zone.}

25 Jun 2021 12:35:14
Makes more sense than the real world 😁.

25 Jun 2021 12:44:38
Manchester City have a genuine interest in Jack Grealish and are set to make their move. but #avfc are intent on keeping him at the club, with talks ongoing over a new contract. Villa's owners are ambitious and serious about continuing the club's progress - John Percy

Interesting few days ahead, either he goes for a British record or gets a bumper new deal.

25 Jun 2021 15:17:59
I think it’s win win for us, we either keep him or we get a ridiculous amount of cash for him, owners won’t sell him for 100 million more like 140-150 we hold the aces, player has a long contract and we don’t need the money this year, if we do sell we know our owners are not afraid to invest so we are sitting pretty imo.

25 Jun 2021 16:11:15
Whilst I like Jack, I agree with you Whack, I think it is win win for us. If Jack stays with us that’s great, however if he wants to go, we say to City we want Harrison plus £80 million and whilst City supposedly have agreed to sell Harrison to Leeds, if they want Jack then that’s the deal take it or leave it. The £80 million we get we then invest in the likes of JWP, Berge, and Abraham in that way the squad is a lot stronger than what we have currently which has to be good for the future of the club

At the risk of upsetting at least one of the Ed’s again, how realistic from an ffp perspective is it for City to sign both Grealish and Kane? Ands that’s a genuine question I confess I don’t know.

25 Jun 2021 16:48:49
It would be sad to see Jack go but I do agree with Wack and John. I think the lad is craving to play at an higher level in European and world competitions and If he leaves I would say good luck to him and thank you for your years of service at Villa Park.

25 Jun 2021 17:07:30
Maybe that's why old captain beaky isn't playing Jack- City have given him a nice brown envelope ala Fat Sam not to so the rest of the world can't see how good he really is and keep the price down? 🤔
And before the Eds jump all over this, I am firmly tongue in cheek with this comment 😁
Ps no animals were harmed during its making 👍.

25 Jun 2021 17:32:46
Think I’ve probably already said this many times before, don’t underestimate how Villa mad Jacks family are and the influence they will have, I don’t think he’ll leave for that reason alone, I’m sure he’ll get a new deal and a pay rise and I don’t begrudge him that, he’s in the England squad, through gritted teeth every England fan knows he’s probably the biggest player/ superstar of the group, not saying that through Villa tinted glasses either, if we get the players we’ve been linked with (JWP etc) then we’ve got as good a chance as any of getting top 4, winning domestic cups, he’d want to be a part of that, I’m sure some would disagree but he’s in touching distance of being known as the GOAT at Villa, the fella hasn’t even peaked yet


25 Jun 2021 17:51:58
Ally there may be a few that actually "peak" if Jack ends up signing a new contract 😁.

25 Jun 2021 19:05:27
Come again Moose.? 😝


25 Jun 2021 19:19:40
You'll have to give me a few minutes 😊.

25 Jun 2021 19:52:17
Mrs Moose is a lucky woman, Mrs Ally has to read War and Peace waiting…


25 Jun 2021 21:34:27
I have just read a fascinating article about how Wes Eden rewards loyalty in his star Baskerball player Milwaukee Bucks player Giannis Antetokounmpo in the states and keeps the opposition vultures away from him.
This is a similar situation to Jack’s position at Villa and I would recommend you all have a look at it.
You can find it on the Aston Villa rumours Now site under a Under the Gas Lit Lamp article.

25 Jun 2021 21:49:16
🤣🤣🤣🤣 like it Ally 👍.

26 Jun 2021 08:43:32
Posted about Eden’s and the Bucks half way through the season Aka, when some were telling us how our down turn in form will annoy the owners and Grealish will be off, the managers getting sacked next week and Gerrards the new boss etc etc. It’s amazing how little research people still do when as you’ve highlighted, there’s so much info out there these days.

27 Jun 2021 09:25:00
You can bet Jonathan Barnett is going to prosper out of Grealish-gate, whatever eventually happens.

There seems to be two key factors here:

1. Grealish’s own wishes
2. Financial recompense that meets Sawiris/ Edens’ demand.

The difficulty could lie with the latter, as even City will have a budget to work to and moving on expensive/ highly paid players to accommodate JG will not be easy.

24 Jun 2021 14:41:27
It has emerged again that Villa are once more assessing the situation with Morgan Sanson, and
Aston Villa chiefs fear they have made a big mistake in signing him.
Aston Villa sources have told Football Insider that there is a feeling in the corridors of power the club "haven't done their homework" over the 26-year-old Frenchman.
He is said to be very difficult to manage, and proved to be so much trouble for two of his former agents they decided to let him go.
Not sure if this is all true, but if it is, questions will be asked.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2021 17:17:17
This is old
News, however another article states that he hasn’t been playing regular football and that villa bosses want to give him time. The media is always full of this kind of bull……. they turn misdirected glance at the manager into transfer speculation.

24 Jun 2021 18:46:29
Only really put in one good half of football if we are being honest. Although his attitude was never questionable, put himself about even when he was having a bad game.

24 Jun 2021 19:06:52
I have to agree Chris, like I said before, whenever I have seen him, he was always a presence on the pitch, and has impressed me.
It looks like I got it wrong mate, shame really I don`t like to see people fail in any undertaking.

25 Jun 2021 17:41:07
Hopefully with a preseason he can pick up some form and fire to get a place in the team!

22 Jun 2021 23:44:20
I see John Percy has stated we are going back in for Smith-Rowe - I know it's not going to happen but for a second can we imagine this front 4 at Villa next season, wow!

Buendia, Smith-Rowe, Grealish


Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2021 23:21:02
Looks like we are preparing a second bid for Emile Smith-Rowe, I really can't see this one happening. We took their main summer target, if we were to take one of their rising stars, whom is already a regular part of their first team it would be their owners openly admitting they are happy for the club to continue their decline.

The fact we have bid and are planning a second bid tells me the players agent had suggested there is interest and therefore reason to do so. This could either be genuine, or the agent looking to show Arsenal there's genuine interest elsewhere so they can get a better deal.

Either way I hope we don't waste too much time on this, we should always strive to get the best deal but there's a fine line between the benefit of getting the best deal and wasting time and missing out on other targets.

Exciting times to be a Villa fan!

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2021 05:00:01
It might depend on the money situation at Arsenal. If they want players like Aouar, and Ben White for instance, they might be more tempted to offload Smith- Rowe to help fund those deals. It would be great if we could get him but Alvarez is probably more realistic. A front 4 of Grealish, Buendia, Alvarez and Watkins would be as equally mouth watering.

23 Jun 2021 06:03:17
Mouth watering agreed, but we would need two very effective midfielders behind them to avoid being overrun. I don’t think we have that pair at the moment.

One of the reasons why Grealish was switched to the left from no. 10 role was due to the flimsy midfield we had as a result. Add to which, he rarely runs on beyond the centre forward without the ball. Buendia is not too dissimilar, although tends to thread the ball through or work on sharp one-twos with the front man.

23 Jun 2021 08:08:11
I think it would be Smith Rowe, or Alvarez, rather than both. If we signed both all of a sudden we have Grealish, Buendia, ESR and Alvarez all fighting for the positions behind Watkins. Grealish is more or less guaranteed to start, with the other three fighting for the other two spots, I can’t see any of them signing on the basis there a good chance they’ll be spending a portion of the season on the bench.

Add into that Traore, El Ghazi and Chukky, and we’ve got far too many players for those positions😂 I think Trez will be sold once fully fit.

Personally, I’d sooner see us focus on a defensive midfielder to play behind these lads, protect the back four and allow the other to do whatever they want.

23 Jun 2021 09:50:14
I think sadly that the ESR business is all designed to secure him a better deal at Arsenal, I think other players such as Willock, Guendouzi, Elneny and Maitland Niles are the ones likely to be sacrificed to secure additional funds.

Whilst it is good to be linked with all these progressive attacking players I would like to see us associated with that beast of a defensive midfielder that I think will really take us to the next level. I know there are noises around Berge but they don’t sound that likely if I am honest so I would like our next move to be in that space to be honest.

23 Jun 2021 11:00:36
Talking of defensive midfielders, Romeu of Southampton is the latest player that we’ve apparently registered an interest in. Any thoughts on this one guys?

23 Jun 2021 12:26:06
On the face of it, his age goes against the policy at the minute, but with us losing our 3 oldest players, some experience in the actual starting X11 and not the bench (Young) might be what we need.

23 Jun 2021 15:20:50
I was banging on about Romeu a few months back. one of the best defensive midfielders in the league in my opinion. strong, aggressive and technically sound. might be getting on a bit but if we can get him for a decent price he'd definitely be worth it. Straight into our first 11 and will help us bridge the gap to the teams above us.

21 Jun 2021 16:16:05
This Julian Alvarez of River Plate who we're being linked with looks the business, shades of Coutihno about him


Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2021 17:13:36
Yeah seen the same report Ally, it sounds pretty genuine as well.
Only 21, and is very well thought of, let's wait and see.

21 Jun 2021 17:31:40
Agent Martinez on the case again? 🤔 while he's at it see if he can get their No10 interested, he looks OK from his YouTube highlights 😁.

21 Jun 2021 18:36:36
What the Messi ah surely not even Agent M could pull that one off 🤔.

21 Jun 2021 18:41:00
I think we should take a punt on the kid, last time we had a sniff of buying someone from River Plate was Falcao for £2M, but Heskey for £3M instead was a much better deal 🙄


21 Jun 2021 18:43:25
There's a few top players been pulled off over the years-usually makes the front pages 😁.

21 Jun 2021 19:53:50
Ive seen an article saying JWP is keen on moving to us, great news if true.

21 Jun 2021 19:55:45
😂😂😂 Moose


21 Jun 2021 20:36:36
They only slight downside is Alverez is another player favouring the right flank. Ideally, I would prefer someone for the other wing.

Despite El Ghazi’s goal return last season, I remain unconvinced. His contributions are too sporadic for a first team performer in a side aspiring to be a top third regular year in, year out.

22 Jun 2021 05:04:55
Alvarez is apparently very adept at playing centre forward as well, so could be a good replacement/ competition for Ollie, who used to be a winger himself.
And yes, very witty Moosey boy, as we’ve come to expect 😁.

22 Jun 2021 11:14:54
Transfermarkt lists his main position on the right, but the reports I’ve read suggest he prefers a more central role, a second striker type. Looks an excellent prospect and with a fair South American contingent at the club, I’m sure he’d settle. Let’s hope!

22 Jun 2021 19:44:44
Edd, what are the rules and regulations regarding foreign players in the Prem especially 3 from the same country?

{Ed002's Note - There are no specific rules - they need a Work Permit.}

22 Jun 2021 20:34:40
Thank you Ed.

23 Jun 2021 06:06:25
Perhaps less likely, but Traore has a fair record playing through the centre. He is a player that can pull off the exquisite at times, but lacks a bit of consistency.

23 Jun 2021 06:31:41
I just checked back on Alvarez, as I had also seen reference to him playing through the centre as an option. At only 5’7’’, I think it would more likely that role would be as a second striker/ no. 10, rather than centre forward.

16 Jun 2021 17:18:15
It would appear that we've had a 25 million bid for Smith Rowe turned down by Arsenal.
I can't say I blame them, he has the potential to be a very good player. That doesn't mean to say he will do though, many promising 20 year olds fall by the wayside. So whilst I can understand them turning it down and I think 25 million is a fair bid for this player.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2021 20:24:48
It is suggest an improved £30M deal has now been made for young Emile. Gooners are spouting off at the disrespect shown by those ‘cheeky upstarts’ at Villa. Times are a changin’ as Bobby D once spouted….

22 Jun 2021 05:20:01
Yes I can definitely sense something ‘ Blowin in the wind’

15 Jun 2021 21:27:38
Looks like we're interested in Ashley Young on a free. Seems a no brainer to me, lost 3 experienced players this summer so bringing someone in who has been at the highest level, won almost all there is to win at club level, knows what it takes to make the step up and knows the club, can only be a positive. Plus despite his age, proved last season he still has the ability to provide adequate cover for a number of positions.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2021 22:56:25
Hard to believe he’s 35, great player for us in the past. if he’s still got the legs I’d have him.

16 Jun 2021 07:35:21
Played 34 times in a title winning season last year so you’d imagine he’s still got enough in the tank!

Not the sort of signing that gets everyone excited but could be shrewd bit of business. Barry to Everton, Milner to Liverpool type signing!

16 Jun 2021 14:29:02
Not for me. Having him back at his age just doesn’t seem to meet our owners requirements.

16 Jun 2021 17:09:17
It would be great to have Ashley back at the club. Apart from being an asset on the pitch and a very capable replacement for Matt Targett, I think he could have a big influence on our younger players. We are lacking players with his level of experience, and that in itself would be invaluable.

16 Jun 2021 17:35:29
My thoughts exactly Mark.

16 Jun 2021 22:56:16
Think he’d be a brilliant addition. Get him involved in some coaching, can cover both fullback positions, and even play further forward. He’s a great athlete, and has a winning mentality. Also, takes a wicked set piece. Bring him home!

21 Jun 2021 20:28:09
Wasn’t sure on this one and wondered if Ashley was using his surname as camouflage. However, on reflection, maybe a short term arrangement isn’t a bad shout, given his versatility. He might even see a fair bit of game time across various flank roles.

Another wise old head will be useful too.

14 Jun 2021 18:12:11
After signing Buendia, if we got Ward-Prowse, Andrea Bellotti and an up and coming left back, would be the perfect transfer window for me


Agree0 Disagree0
