July 15 Transfer Zone: Grealish drops a major hint, and Bale on the move?

From the likely to the outlandish, Planet Sport brings you a fresh batch of transfer news from this summer's window.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish was filmed as part of Aston Villa's 2021/22 kit release saying "I love playing for this club".

On paper, it seems like Grealish's mind is set, and Villa fans can finally sit back, relax, and enjoy the fact their captain is staying at the club.

But you don't have to look too far back to see why some Villa fans may not be too confident... yes, we're looking at you Fabian Delph.

Villa's former captain was ironically also linked with a move to Manchester City in 2015, but amid the rumours spoke out to pledge his loyalty to Villa, and that he looked forward to captaining the club in the following season.

A nice gesture, sure - until just one week later his £8million move to Manchester City was confirmed. It's fair to say it didn't go down too well with Villa fans. We can't even imagine the reaction if Grealish was to do the same.

Divock Origi

Liverpool forward Origi has grabbed the headlines over a potential move away from the Merseyside club.

With Jurgen Klopp supposedly looking to offload him, Liverpool are looking for between £17-20million for his signature - it's crazy what a goal in the Champions League final is worth these days.

An £11million bid from Monchengladbach has been rejected by the Premier League side, and if the valuation isn't met, it is believed that Origi could be used in part of a player swap deal.

Either way, it seems the clock's ticking for Divock at Liverpool.

Joe Willock

After single-handedly lighting up Newcastle United's campaign last season, it's no surprise that Steve Bruce wants the Arsenal youngster to return to St James Park this summer.

In just 14 starts, Joe Willock managed to net eight goals in the North East, making him the side's second-highest top scorer in the Premier League last season.

But perhaps the most surprising aspect of the move is that Willock apparently would prefer a move back to Newcastle instead of trying his luck at Arsenal.

Willock's rejection is the latest blow for Arsenal fans after a hugely disappointing transfer window and an embarassing pre-season loss to Hibernian, but hey, at least that documentary is off to a good start.

Never gonna happen...

There's really nothing like a bit of hopeful thinking is there...
