Don’t Jack in your Villa am­bi­tions

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Sport -

JACK GRE­AL­ISH should re­sist all at­tempts by Tot­ten­ham to tempt him away from As­ton Villa.

That’s the view of Sam Allardyce who be­lieves play­maker Gre­al­ish (above), val­ued at an eye-wa­ter­ing £60mil­lion, should stick around at Villa for at least an­other next 12 months.

“It’s im­por­tant to keep Gre­al­ish on board, that’s es­sen­tial for their sea­son and hopes of main­tain­ing their Premier League sta­tus,” said Allardyce.

“And I won­der why Gre­al­ish would want to leave now any­way. He’s got to where he wanted to go with the club he loves, so why not stay and see where the jour­ney takes him.

“He’s adored by Villa fans and he’s play­ing on the big­gest stage. If I was him I would stick around and see what hap­pens.

“If Villa buy the right play­ers to go with him, then they could go a

long way.”
