Jacob Ramsey’s transfer decision amid Tottenham interest, Eze difficulties and Parrott future

Alasdair says: “Jacob Ramsey is certainly a player that Johan Lange is a big fan of and pushing for and Ange Postecoglou believes can fit his system well. He had a tough season with foot and toe injuries but has looked a big prospect around that. Much depends on Villa and also the player. In recent days there’s been a growing feeling that a bid between £40million and £50million might be enough to tempt Villa into selling.

“Don’t forget the player also has to decide, though, and it would be a tough one to leave your boyhood club that have just got into the Champions League right now. Ultimately if a deal could be agreed then the versatile midfielder, who turned 23 last month, would have to decide which option was better for the long term and it would be a tight choice I’d imagine as a Villa lad. For Spurs I think he makes a lot of sense, he’s very versatile and highly rated as well as being homegrown.”

Alasdair says: “Spurs were definitely interested before but I’d imagine Newcastle would need money for the closing of their financial books tomorrow. Gordon will be rather busy with England this weekend and hopefully not riding any more bicycles.

Alasdair says: “I would say it’s more than likely Troy Parrott will be sold this summer. I’ve reported before that AZ Alkmaar are showing the most interest and at this point I would imagine that could well end up being his destination. He’s done well in the Eredivisie and it suits him down to the ground. I would have loved to have seen him break through at Spurs and so would he, but it feels like that window of opportunity has closed.”
