Spurs are yet to bring anyone in during the summer transfer window, but have been heavily linked with Jack Grealish
James Chester has committed his future to Aston Villa, but says team-mate Jack Grealish should not be criticised if he leaves for the Premier League.
The 22-year-old has been a long-time Tottenham Hotspur target and he could move to north London before the transfer deadline next week.
“I think Jack is the most talented player at the club and deserves to be playing at the very top of the game,” Chester told Press Association Sport.
“People forget he is still very young, but we know Villa will be a real threat to anyone in the division (Sky Bet Championship) if he stays.

“It would be sad to see him go and I don’t know if he will now that the ownership of the club has changed.
“But I don’t think anyone should hold it against him if he ends up going to a top Premier League club.”
