'In your dreams', 'Get stuffed' - Aston Villa fans furious at latest reported transfer news
Leicester City have been linked with a move for Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish in a reported £20million transfer this summer.
According to The Mirror, the Foxes want the Villa ace to star in the Premier League and see him as the perfect fit to come in behind Jamie Vardy in an attacking-midfield role.
Seven assists and three goals in the Championship from the right-footer have attracted the interest of the former English champions and Claude Puel, who has a history of blooding youngsters.
But supporters of the Claret and Blues were all saying the same thing on social media about the interest in their player.
Fans questioned the £20m valuation on Grealish and felt that in today’s inflated transfer market, it wouldn’t be enough to allow their star player a move to the Premier League outfit.
The 22-year-old has been a massive part of a Villa side which stormed to second in the Championship after Christmas.

But an injury to Birmingham-born ace halted their march up the table and they have failed to rekindle anything like that form since.
Steve Bruce’s side now find themselves down in fourth place but they still have an opportunity to make it into the Premier League by winning the play offs, which according to The Mirror, will be key to keeping hold of Grealish.
Here is a selection of Twitter responses from supporters in reaction to the gossip:
