Will be announced in the next few days, around about the 15m - 20m mark, good business I recon.

Got to feel sorry for Villa at that price. Imagine if that'd been us & someone coming in & nicking Winks for a pittance coz we were skint

I feel sorry for their fans, but not the club - they've only got themselves to blame. I actually wish more teams spending beyond their means ended up seeing severe consequences for it, then it wouldn't happen so often.

Absolute steal for that price. Glad it looks like it's getting wrapped up before we head out on tour.

Although there appears to be different fees mentioned, the main thing to take is that it seems a fee has been agreed. Hopefully shouldn’t drag out now.

Great news, can't wait for the announcement.

I'm far more excited by the potential of Grealish than I ever was about Ross Barkley;

And that's not just because I've had thoughts about Grealish which would get me executed in many countries.

I'm guessing you'd want to be part of the team doing the medical on him...

It's worth a gamble at 15-20. If it's higher like Trix says then I much less convinced it's a good deal.

Don't agree that it's a steal, it can become a very valuable deal for us, but it's not a steal. Good reasonable price, more would be some gamble. And there are other similiar players going at same rate from clubs who aren't in same situation, Maddison.
Villa would have demanded a ridiculous fee if they could, Grealish hasn't shown anything to say he's a 40-50m player - that would be paying for talent that could be worth it .. or not. If he becomes a 50+ player then it's because he takes that next step with us. We shouldn't have to pay for it before he's there.

North of 15-20m for a 22 year old Championship player is a pittance?

How good is he?

I guess the 4,598 posts moaning about the Grealish fee in his thread just didn't happen and it's refreshing that the few I've got rid of offer up a brand new perspective that hasn't been mentioned before. The fee is an aspect that I can't believe hasn't been discussed at all until now and especially the comparisons with Sissoko's fee.

It just goes too show one should never underestimate the cerebral qualities of the ITK aficionado
