Manchester City is set to complete a £100m transfer deal for Jack Grealish.
According to a report on Wednesday, Grealish had returned to training with Aston Villa on Monday in London after his holidays in Mykonos and Dubrovnik.
The Daily Mail reports the British record transfer will go through as Grealish due in Manchester to sign his contract.
After being probed by fans over his future whilst posing for pictures at Villa’s training camp, Grealish remained silent.
England star had reportedly held discussions with Villa’s sporting director Johan Lange and made it clear it was time for him to move on. Now that he has told his beloved club that he wanted to leave this summer, the deal could be done very soon.
It was gathered that Villa offered him a second contract extension in two years as the club were willing ‘smash their pay ceiling’ to keep him, with a £200,000 per week deal.
Grealish though is believed to have chatted to Lange, Dean Smith, and owners Wes Edens and Nassef Sawiris to finalise his exit.
The 25-year-old England will now get the chance to play on the Champions League stage and cement himself into the plans of England boss Gareth Southgate.
He started most of the games played at the European tournament from the bench. His impact was felt against Germany when he came in for Bukayo Saka. Grealish started the move that resulted in the two goals at the Wembley Stadium.
