Tottenham are closing in on a deal to sign Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and have made an offer of £25m ahead of deadline day.

According to Sam Wallace, of The Telegraph, claims that Spurs have made their move for the England under-21 star.

Villa are yet to come back with a response to the offer, with reports earlier this summer claiming that the club wanted £40m to take him away from Villa Park.

James Maddison became the most expensive player in Championship history earlier this summer when he left Norwich City to join Leicester in the Premier League for £24m.

Grealish would become the new holder of that record if he completes his move to Tottenham over the next 48 hours.
