Aston Villa winger Jack Grealish on Newcastle United radar

Grant SmithJun 08, 2018

Villa already need to find £40 million in order to comply with Financial Fair Play, which may see them needing to sell a player in order to fund that necessity.

Villa's best chance of bringing in quick cash is to sell midfielder Jack Grealish, who is a target for several Premier League clubs.

It had been claimed that HRMC has issued a winding up order against Aston Villa after the club missed a tax payment, but the Championship side have been given a period of a week to make the payment to avoid facing the order.

Grealish is likely to provide Villa's biggest cash boost to the coffers as the club look to stabilize after years of overspending.

Villa have arranged a plan with HMRC to pay off a £4.2m tax debt but they still face a huge challenge to balance the books after failure in the Championship play-offs.

Grealish, one of Villa's main assets and a fan favourite, is believed to have been earmarked for a sale to help the club raise money. The outstanding amount is then likely to be sent swiftly.

Owner Dr. Tony Xia has still not been in contact with the former Manchester United defender about his future, even though it is more than two weeks since the club lost to Fulham at Wembley Stadium.

A number of interested parties have approached the club to discuss purchasing the club outright.

The group is unhappy with a lack of communication from the top and want clarity over the club's position.

"I am guessing that plan didn't involve being belittled by our own ineptitude, him being put on the naughty step and us looking down the barrel of administration".
