Tottenham say to complete Villa move

Tottenham Hotspur fans have responded to claims Aston Villa want a move for midfielder Harry Winks.

The Telegraph reported on Wednesday that Villa is monitoring Winks’ situation at Spurs as AS Roma continue to be linked with a move for Douglas Luiz.

New Roma boss Jose Mourinho is said to be a Douglas admirer with a move for Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka which has yet to materialize with the player still involved in the Euro 2020 action after Switzerland beat the France earlier this week.

Douglas is unlikely to leave Villa Park, but whatever happens to the Brazil international, Villa sporting director Johan Lange has signaled he is considering reinforcements in the midfield.

Neville makes Grealish’s prediction

Gary Neville predicted England’s roster for Saturday’s Euro 2020 quarter-final against Ukraine in Rome – and that’s more disappointment for Jack Grealish fans.

Villa’s talisman has only made one start in the tournament so far, in the group final against the Czech Republic, scoring the only goal of the game.

He came off the bench with 20 minutes to go against Germany on Tuesday with wonderful effect, having a hand in Raheem Sterling’s opening goal and then a cross for Harry Kane to come home in the deciding second game.
