Jack Grealish is reportedly 'on the verge' of signing for Manchester City in a record-breaking deal today.
The Aston Villa captain has been weighing up whether to stay with his boyhood club or join the Premier League champions in a British-record transfer deal.
City have reportedly made a bid of £100m for the 25-year-old, who returned to pre-season training with Villa this week.

And the deal looks to be nearing completion with the Daily Mail saying Grealish is due in Manchester on Wednesday to sign a contract with City and The Athletic reporting the deal is 'on the verge' of completion.
The Telegraph have reported that a medical is expected in the next 48 hours and there is an "outside chance" that he could be available to play in Saturday's Community Shield match against Leicester.
The news comes on the same day that Villa announced the arrival of Leon Bailey from Bayer Leverkusen on a deal reportedly worth £30m.
Bailey is Villa’s second attacking addition of the summer after Emiliano Buendia arrived on a club-record deal from Norwich.
It remains to be seen what Grealish's arrival means for City's pursuit of Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
Kane has not turned up for Spurs training this week as he looks to leave the club, but it is reported that chairman Daniel Levy is not willing to compromise on his valuation of £160m.
Kane and Grealish were both part of the England squad that reached the final of Euro 2020.
Grealish came off the bench to play a key role in both of England's goals in the round-of-16 win over Germany. The playmaker was also introduced as a substitute in the semi-final against Denmark and final against Italy.

Expert Analysis - Will Grealish need to change his game?

Former Manchester United and England defender Paul Parker: "I don’t think it will be Harry Kane and Grealish for Manchester City this summer. I don’t think that would work out money-wise for City.
"But if Grealish does go to City, which looks like happening, then he will not be guaranteed regular football, despite the pricetag, Pep Guardiola doesn’t do that for anybody.
"And will he have to change his game as well? He will have to do more on the ball, running with it and keeping it, rather than falling over as often as he does. I don’t think Pep will deal with it, he had Lionel Messi who only really fell over when people hurt him. Grealish doesn’t do that right now."
